    This was great as a burrito filling. I added several tablespoons of diced jalapenos, topped with sour cream and wrapped in flour tortillas.

    My 2 boys and I adore this recipe. I fix it one day and we have it over brown rice. I save the leftovers, as it makes a lot, and we have it a day or so later in tortilas or in taco shells. We have also just served it with large chips or Frito “Scoops”. I have made it using the light cream cheese and it came out just the same. Great!

    This was amazing…I will definitely be making this again. Did anyone try 1/3 fat cream cheese? Just wondering how that would taste?

    Amy,

    You will probably still want to use the same cooking time, but maybe the 4 hours instead of the 6 hours. Just check to make sure the chicken is cooked all of the way through.

    I am very new…as in this could be my first attempt…at using a crock pot. This recipe sounds yummy but I would like to cut it in 1/2. Does that affect the cooking time? Sorry, if that is a dumb question but as I stated “newbie!”.

    Family Loves this and I cook so many different things they never really request a certain dish but this dish they remembered and asked for. Can’t go wrong with this one.

    Nicole,
    You could use non fat cream cheese or maybe just make a rue and add it at the last minute to thicken it up.

    Made this last night – my first Crockin’ Girls recipe! I only used one package of cream cheese and then added some shredded mexican cheese and served it over mexican rice. My husband loved it! I am excited to have it leftover today – I think it will taste better. Great and easy recipe!

    Is there an alternative for the cream cheese. I want to make this a bit healthier……?

  14. Jessica

    I made this today, my first crockin’ recipe, YUM! I made this in the Crock-Pot SCVT650-PS 6-1/2-Quart Programmable Touchscreen Slow Cooker. I decided to cook on low for 10 – 10.5 hours instead of on high because I was at work all day. I used 2 packets of tenderloins from costco instead of full breasts as thats what i had on hand. The chicken was super moist after 10 hours and the house smelled delicious! I did make add some chili powder, pepper and some cayenne pepper and salt to give it a little more flavor. I will use a spicier salsa next time as well ( I put a medium spiced salsa in) as we like a little more kick. This will definitely be a go to for an easy meal! It was crock tastic!

    Lee Ann…You can make this with chicken that is not frozen, but you would have to take a couple of hours off of the cook time.

  16. Lea Ann

    Can this be prepared with chicken that isn’t frozen?

  17. FlowersandChocolates

    We call this “not for company” because it tastes amazing but does not look pretty! We serve it over rice… yum!
