Slow cooker tex-mex chicken stew recipe. This chicken recipe belongs to Mexican cuisine. Chicken thighs with vegetables and spices cooked in a slow cooker. The chicken thighs were incredibly tender from being cooked in the slow cooker. The seasonings and spices made this stew very flavorful. Use 6-quart (6 L) slow cooker for this recipe.

Just pour all ingredients into the slow cooker and turn it on low-heat setting. Cook and enjoy!

I used boneless and skinless chicken thighs, canned tomatoes, canned beans, canned corn, chicken stock (I used canned), and spices. Also, this recipe contains canned BUSH’S® Chili Magic® Chili Starter Texas.
