Looking for an easy Cinco de Mayo recipe? Allow us to introduced these crock pot chicken enchilada stuffed peppers.
Who loves stuffed peppers? I do!
I grew up eating these on a bi-weekly basis (or at least it felt like that). I've never steered away from my traditional stuffed peppers with ground beef and rice before last month.
I also always pre-cooked the bell pepper and then baked them off in the oven. That's no longer needed with these Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Stuffed Peppers!
For years now, I've seen people cook their stuffed peppers in the slow cooker... why I haven't tried this until now is beyond me. Especially because you all know how much I love my slow cooker!
I also don't understand why I have yet to branch out from the standard stuffed bell pepper with newer variations of filling. Seriously, this is a super easy recipe and the best way to utilize leftover rotisserie chicken, rice and, of course, use up that homemade spicy enchilada sauce!
This is an ideal weekend meal or a meal that you can put together quickly and have three hours to go run errands! I've only ever cooked these on high for three hours, so I can't guarantee that a low setting for double the amount of time would work. If you try it, let me know!
This recipe is a total crowd pleaser, too. You can have a batch of the peppers sitting warm in the slow cooker along with the rest of your potluck. Keeping foods warm is essential when throwing a big party so I always like to bring out recipes like this!
All you need to bring it together is some cool guacamole and chips, and maybe a green salad if you're feeling healthy!
Whether you're throwing a Mexican Fiesta brunch or simply want an easy dinner to put together to commemorate Cinco de Mayo this recipe will rock your socks!
