Creamy Crock-Pot Fiesta Chicken

Easy and delicious creamy, slow cooker, fiesta chicken!

Hey party people! I’m here this morning with another easy peasy crock-pot recipe! This last month has been so. busy. Seriously, I could work all day and all night and still not get everything done. In fact, that’s basically what I have been doing, haha! Anyway, one of my New Years resolutions was to be better at planning and cooking meals for my family (yay, it’s April and I’m still trying! ha) and so for that to happen during a busy month like this the crock-pot is basically my bff. It’s so easy it’s almost like someone is bringing me dinner every night.. almost. It has actually been really fun because I’ve been reminded of so many easy dinner recipes I love and I can’t wait to share this one with you today!

    FYI, if you have an Instant Pot, this recipe works fine basically unaltered.

    Put the ingredients in the pot as instructed (you may want to lean towards more salsa rather than less). Put the lid on and set the pressure release to “seal”, then cook at high pressure for 20 minutes. Do a quick release, then follow the recipe as written using the Instant Pot’s “high” slow cook setting for melting the cream cheese.

    Ooh, this makes me hungry! We make a very similar recipe, but we find we like less cream cheese so we cut it down to about 1/3 a block.
