    Too taste, Lisa. A handful should be plenty. Of course, if you would like more cilantro flavor you can add more after it has finished crockin’….

  2. Lisa

    How much cilantro?

    I would drain the corn and beans but not the tomatoes. If you need more liquid, add water or more broth.

  4. PJ

    Can’t wait to give this a try since my family loves chicken tortilla soup, but a quick question first: do I drain all the canned goods (corn, beans, tomatoes) or do any of them need to go in with their liquid? Thanks.

    Don’t precook your chicken, Natalee, but you can definitely throw it in frozen or thawed. The crock will cook it! Even if it’s frozen, 8 hours should be enough crockin’ time. Just check the internal temp (165 degrees) of the chicken. You can shred your chicken once it’s done, or you can use kitchen shears to cut it in chunks (my personal fave!).

    Does the chicken need to be cooked or can I put it in frozen?
    How much cilantro?

    I was wondering, would there be much a problem with adding the cream cheese at the beginning? I am not home to add it after 4 hours. I am new to crock pots, and I need to be able to toss it all in before I leave for work… What do ya’ think??

    I clicked on the link on top wrong… This is definitely a five star. If it can pass the taste buds of twin ten year old, 13 year old, and hubs — all men… Then this is a good one!

    Yum. Thanks for the recipe. Excited to try so many of the others.
