Slow Cooker Creamy Fiesta Chicken is a HUGE hit in my house every time I make it! SO simple and CRAZY delicious!

My slow cooker is out in full force these days. It was my mini New Years resolution. I mean, slow cooking and pressure cooking is always something I try to do, but I really want to get into using it a few times a week. It just makes the evenings so much easier.

And I’m always about a Tex-Mex dish, which always seem to be super adaptable to the slow cooker.

A few years ago I posted a recipe for Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken and it was crazy popular. It’s still one of my go-to weeknight meals. I like it because it makes a huge amount, so I make it, use it all week or freeze it.

So today we’re taking that base recipe, switching up a few little things and making it CREAMY! Oh dude, you’re gonna freaking LOVE THIS STUFF! It’s crazy easy, super delicious and just the right amount of spicy!

AND I made a little video to show you just HOW easy!


The amazing thing about this recipe is that you can use it in tacos, like I showed in the video, or you could serve it over rice, in a quesadilla, in enchiladas, stuffed in a baked potato, on its own…get creative!

Creamy Fiesta Chicken! This meal is a HUGE hit in my house every time I make it! SO simple and CRAZY delicious!

So get your slow cookers ready! I am 100% sure you are going to love this!

Yay thanks so much for posting this, I live in NZ and we are in the middle of winter, so I was on the look out for things to make and take when we go skiing in a couple of weeks. I love having stuff ready for tea when we come off the mountain and are tired and don’t feel like cooking. I’ll get back to you and let you know how I go, sometimes its harder adjusting recipes to our temps and cooking methods, but this looks easy so I’m off out today to get all the stuff and… Read more »

Ok, so this is the best recipe ever! However, we’re a family of five but my two oldest daughters have already outgrown me lol, so this wasn’t enough. Can I double the recipe by stacking another layer of chicken breasts on top of the others? I’m new to crock pot cooking so wasn’t sure if it would cook evenly or if time should be added. Thanks so much in advance!
