Creamy Fiesta Chicken – Cookies and Cups

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!
