Crock pot Mexican Chicken

If you didn’t want to make this meal ahead of time and just wanted to put everything in the crock pot in the morning when you woke up, you can totally do that too.  I promise that you will like it and want to make it again though…so maybe make two batches and freeze one for those busy nights πŸ™‚
