Slow-Cooker Spanish Rice & Chicken

by | Updated: August 16th, 2017

Winter is typically time for slow cookers to camp out on countertops. Who doesn’t prefer snuggling under a blanket while a hearty stew simmers in the kitchen? But with hotter months here, crockpots can come in just as handy. Spend your time poolside while a fiery dinner cooks itself with just five quick minutes of prep time. Towel off, pull up a picnic chair and roll a burrito with this spicy rice and chicken mix for a surprise summertime fiesta the whole family will love.
