Crock Pot Creamy Mexican Chicken (Aka Fiesta Chicken)

READY IN: 4hrs 5mins
Recipe by BlondieItaliana

Creamy chicken dish that you can spice up to suit your taste. Basically, it's slow cooker chicken with cream cheese & any other ingredients you like. This recipe is our favorite combination and has a mexican flair. Plus, using the crock pot makes this dish simple & fills the whole house with a nice aroma. We like it best served over cooked egg noodles or rice. I gave this recipe to my cousin & she serves it by adding spoonfuls of it to pre-made taco shells. (Note: sometimes instead of onion & red bell pepper I just add 1-1 1/2 cups of frozen bell pepper/onion from the bag in the freezer secion)

The only thing I did differently with this recipe was that I shredded the chicken while still in the crockpot before adding the cream cheese. It was DELCIOUS! This will become a staple food at my house.
