I'm trying to add a second TXT record to a domain, but I get the following error:

Tried to create resource record set type='TXT but it already exists

Can I add two records at the same domain?

You would enter all the TXT values at the same time... even the one that already exists.

Example CLI:

route53 --zone example.com -c --type TXT --name example.com --values "text1","text2","text3" 

Example WebUI:

If you are adding it in the WebUI, then your text box with have multiple entries supported in quotes, one per line.
