I do this in my init file, using `add-to-list`:

(with-eval-after-load 'tex
   ;; add a "Crop PDF" entry to TeX-command-list
   (add-to-list 'TeX-command-list
                '("Crop PDF" "pdfcrop %P" TeX-run-command nil t :help "Crop pdf 

That way when a newer version of AUCTeX adds new entries to `TeX-command-list`
you'll get them, too, without losing your customisations.

Thanks for the tip!

But this probably means "Crop PDF" will be last entry?

On my laptop, the pop-up menu with my added entries (about a dozen) extends 
beyond bottom of screen. As they are the items I use most, I want them as high 
up as possible.

My past experience is that I can't put them first, but I don't know if this 
holds true nowadays.

I have had problems in particular when Index and/or BibTeX were missing or were 
too low in the list (I see this comment in my custom.el:

; le problème était un bug de tex-jp.el qui customise TeX-command-list d'une

; les laisse mais je refais le nettoyage des autres qui ne me servent pas.

which says roughly that tex-jp.el required BibTeX and Index to be present, 
hence I had to leave them there but I removed entries which are not useful to 

By the way I don't know the Japanese language but I have sometimes to check 
that things work with Japanese classes.
