Recipe by MsSally
READY IN: 8hrs 20mins




  • Remove skin and visible fat from chicken thighs. Place in crock pot with broth, beer, celery and onion.
  • Cook on high 2 hours or till chicken is done. Remove chicken from crock-pot and allow to cool. Remove bones from chicken thighs and chop meat to desired size. Add diced chicken back to broth in crock-pot. This step can be done ahead of time and refrigerated overnight. Then in the morning, skim off fat collected on top and allow crock to sit for 30 mins at room temp before turning on and adding other ingredients.
  • Add beans, tomatoes, and taco seasoning package. Return crock-pot to low for up to 8 hours or high for as little as two hours.
  • 30 mins before serving add cream cheese to crock-pot and put on high. Stir well before serving, breaking up large pieces with back of spoon. If you are adding rice, do so now and allow to heat thru for a few minutes.
  • Top with crushed chips and cheese.
