Throw this together in the morning and be ready for a warm dinner tonight, I have used frozen chicken breasts in place of thawed, and they worked great! They did take an hour or so to thaw with the crockpot on high, so maybe allow for 30 min-an hour extra cooking time. Different crockpots cook totally differently, some people say that the extra water added made their soup very watery and tasteless, in my crockpot this is not the case. If you like try skipping the water when you put everything in the crockpot in the morning, and if your soup looks too thick before serving add a little water and let it cook in for 10-15 minutes. If you don't love spicy food, look for the MILD Ro-Tel.
