The BEST Easy Crockpot Dinner Recipe
Let’s get started, shall we? Place all of the ingredients except for the cheddar cheese into your slow cooker and mix well.
It should look something like this. Use a spoon to break up the cream cheese so that it melts a little easier.
Cover and cook on LOW for about 6 hours or until the chicken shreds easily and the cream cheese is well incorporated.
Remove the chicken breasts and use a couple of forks to shred it apart. Place it back into your slow cooker with about one cup of cheddar cheese and mix well. Allow the chicken to absorb the spices and juices for an additional 15-30 minutes or until you’re ready to eat.
Serve alone or with tortilla chips, Fritos, avocado, extra cheddar, cilantro, jalapeño or anything else you think would be tasty on there.
