I confess. I am a huge fan of Mexican chicken recipes. Anything that has that authentic, Tex-Mex, or even inspired by Mexican flavor taste is going to be a hit in our house. We love the flavor of cumin, cilantro, and of course a bit of chili powder here and there. Throw in some garlic and you have my mouth watering. Just like these great Mexican chicken recipes inspired by some authentic recipes, as well as some classicly Americanized ideas.

I have broken down these Mexican chicken recipes into categories. Some slow cooker ideas, a few soup recipes, and of course the many casseroles. Whether you are looking for a simple recipe to throw into your slow cooker and have ready when you get home from work, or a fun casserole using leftovers, this list has something for everyone.
I chose chicken once again because it is really our main protein source. We take advantage of the Zaycon Foods sales on antibiotic free chicken breasts for $1.69 a pound. Right now, we have about 30 pounds of chicken breasts in our freezer, and trust me – they are the best quality I have ever purchased. The result is, I need some good recipes that are easy for my Beau to throw together when I am busy working. This list is the beginning of some great ideas for using our chicken. You can, however, use chicken breast, chicken thighs, or potentially pork or beef for a lot of these!
