  1. Just made this! Turned out great. It’s a little more liquidy that I wanted but next time I might drained the tomatoes and omit cream cheese. It’s really yummy as is though. Thank you for a great easy recipe!

  2. Made this for dinner tonight, as written. It’s not an absolute favorite, but my kiddos raved about how good it was, which is saying something. And it was super easy, so I’d definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing!

    Can you cook it on high half the time?

  4. Am just making this for dinner tonight, it seems so liquidy? Sure smells good though

  5. This recipe is INCREDIBLE! So easy and soooo delicious! It’s in our regular rotation now! Thanks much!

  6. I’m a huge fan of Julia Pacheco cooking. Please tell me the brand name of her slow cooker.

    Thank you

  7. This was a great recipe! Thanks for sharing. I just added a few more seasonings and added cornstarch in the last hour of cook time to help thicken up the liquid into a nice thick sauce.

    We enjoyed this today, and I think we’ll get 8-10 servings (not 5) from it. My chicken was about 1.5 pounds. When shredded after cooking, the chicken quickly absorbed the cooking liquid (as others have commented, it looks like too much liquid when you first take off the lid). My husband liked the level of spice, so I boosted just my own portion at the table with sprinkled Mrs. Dash Fiesta-lime seasoning.
