Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Taco Soup

Rated as 4.82 out of 5 Stars

"Reminiscent of the very popular dish King Ranch Chicken in the form a soup. With all the same flavors and the convenience of throwing everything into a slow cooker, this will also quickly become a favorite. Top with fried corn tortilla strips, if desired."

  1. Spray a slow cooker with cooking spray. Add onions, bell pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt. Stir in chicken broth, diced tomatoes, condensed soup, and chiles.
  2. Combine oil, taco seasoning, 1 teaspoon salt, cumin, and black pepper in a bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat on all sides. Transfer to the slow cooker.
  3. Cook on Low until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 2 to 3 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from the slow cooker and shred.
  4. Add Neufchatel cheese to the slow cooker and stir until melted. Return chicken to the slow cooker and cook until warmed through, 20 to 30 minutes more.

I made it with rotisserie chicken in a pot on the stove, but it was still amazing. I am going to try it in the slow cooker next time.

I made this tonight but in my instant pot. Sauteed the onion and green pepper, then added all the other ingredients except the cheese, and I didn't bother coating the chicken - just dumped in th...

It was delicious. I used cream cheese instead of the Neufchâtel cheese.

Very good. Even better the next day. I did add a cup of grated sharp cheddar cheese to it at the end. More for color than anything else.

Delicious! Just the way I like it, quick and easy. Although, I didn't use a crockpot because I used a rotissary chicken and made it o n the stove top. I is so good.....

Was very good of course I added lots of garlic, Serrano powder, crushed red and used my hot hatch Chiles.
