My husband loved this! I used Pace picante sauce - medium hot - and this seemed to solve the bland issue. He got out Tapitio sauce expecting to use it but he did not. He loved the taste. Used handmade corn tortillas shredded cabbage green onions and chopped tomatoes as toppings. Will make this again. Read More

I so wanted to like this because it was easy. However it was a little bland for us even after I pumped it up some with 1 tsp. ground cumin 1/2 tsp. Penzey's Bold Taco Seasoning and 1/2 tsp. chili powder. The blsl chicken was completely done after 2 1/2 hours too. I shredded the chicken and added it back to the pot when I added the cream cheese.

I only had legs & thighs. Removed skin with paper towels. Hold ckn in one hand with paper towel. Grab skin with other hand with paper towel. Sooo easy. I did use a little extra salsa with a little ckn broth (1/4 cup). Followed recipe only I cooked mine in my electric pressure cooker. 20 minutes. Removed bones & shredded ckn. Dark meat always has more flavor. Served with chopped green onion. sliced olives sour cream & shredded cheese. Read More

This recipe was delicious and really easy to make! I thought the chicken might be too bland so I added some chili powder garlic powder salt and pepper to the chicken before placing it in the slow cooker. It turned out really well! Shred your chicken before adding the cream cheese to make it easier to eat. Serve with basic taco fixings - lettuce tomato salsa sour cream etc - for a really yummy and easy dinner! Read More

Instead of salsa I substituted tomatoes with diced green chilies. Also take the lid of the crock pot when you mix in the cream cheese so some of the liquid will evaporate. Very good on flour tortillas topped with cheese! Read More

This a great and fool proof recipe. I give it full stars as is but I've also tweaked it a few times and it has turned out well then too (what salsa you use will make a difference in the ultimate outcome). I almost always use three large breast rather than four unless they are particularly small. Changes I've made that work: pinto beans instead of black added Cayenne pepper seasoning frozen corn instead of canned and/or I've added frozen green and/or red peppers. Homemade corn tortillas is the way to go but if you don't want to go to the hassle store-bought flour is good too. After we run out of tortillas we use tortilla chips to finish it off. Tip: Each time I go to shred the chicken I look at the mix and think "this is too runny! " but without fail after I've added back the shredded chicken added the cream cheese and let it cook for another 30 minutes - it is fine. Read More

This is one of my favorite easy recipes. I have always used Pace Picante Sauce and never thought it was bland. Definitely drain the corn or use frozen. We serve it over rice with corn chips on the side. The rice with the flavorful chicken and sauce makes it extra creamy and delicious. Try it! Read More

We love this recipe. I read how some thought it was bland so I sprinkled a package of taco seasoning on the chicken. Other than that I followed the recipe as written. It was yummy. Thanks for submitting it. Read More

Love this recipe! I use this for making enchiladas but I also add green chili and jalapeño to the crock pot and then enchilada sauce when I put it in the oven. Like others have said I also use fat free cream cheese! I hate anything FF but you can't even tell. So good! Read More
