First, I will say this IS easy. But all too often the easiest route is not always the best route to take.It is true in both life & cooking. Skipping key steps almost always ends up in missed flavor development. For ANY dump and go crock pot recipe there will always be a huge MISSED opportunity for capturing depth and full flavor.Sure, you can take short cuts, like using SOME canned ingredients on a busy day. BUT I always take the 5 minutes to season the meat PRIOR to cooking. In this case I season cut up ( bite size)boneless skinless chicken thighs with 1/2t.to 1t. each. Cumin, Garlic Powder, Oregano and chili powder. If I am short on time, I cut the chicken up, season it and either place in the fridge or freezer till I can get to it. HUGE flavor sinks into the meat. Then I NEVER just dump. Instead I take just 15 more minutes to brown the meat in some oil. Onions and fresh peppers, and garlic can be browned in the last few minutes. Color equals
