Slow Cooker Chicken Santa Fe

This recipe is from Skinnytaste & is one of my all-time favorites. It takes about 10 minutes to just throw everything in a slow cooker and makes about 8 servings! It’s perfect for when you have limited time or just don’t feel like cooking (we’ve all been there!), but still want a healthy, delicious meal that will give you a few days worth of leftovers. To be honest, I skip the cilantro & scallions in my version, but I’m putting the recipe below as it is for those who might enjoy those ingredients.
