Reminiscent of the very popular dish King Ranch Chicken in the form a soup. With all the same flavors and the convenience of throwing everything into a slow cooker, this will also quickly become a favorite. Top with fried corn tortilla strips, if desired.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 serving nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced bell pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles (such as RO*TEL®)
  • 1 (10 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chiles (such as Ortega®)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • 1 (8 ounce) package Neufchatel cheese, softened

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Spray a slow cooker with cooking spray. Add onions, bell pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt. Stir in chicken broth, diced tomatoes, condensed soup, and chiles.
  2. 2 Combine oil, taco seasoning, 1 teaspoon salt, cumin, and black pepper in a bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat on all sides. Transfer to the slow cooker.
  3. 3 Cook on Low until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 2 to 3 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from the slow cooker and shred.
  4. 4 Add Neufchatel cheese to the slow cooker and stir until melted. Return chicken to the slow cooker and cook until warmed through, 20 to 30 minutes more.

  1. it was awesome and I didn't change a thing !
  2. I followed the recipe as is and my family loved it. My opinion is to start with a recipe like this and not change it until you’ve tried it first, to get the original. Then maybe tweak to a personal taste. I see others adding beans, garlic, cream cheese not Neufchâtel, etc. I think the - Read more ...
  3. Delicious - only additions were a can of drained black beans and a cup of frozen corn. Also, halved the cream cheese. Even better the second day!
  4. I made this tonight but in my instant pot. Sauteed the onion and green pepper, then added all the other ingredients except the cheese, and I didn't bother coating the chicken - just dumped in the spices. Set to 15 minutes with a 10 minute natural release then quick release remaining pressure. I changed to - Read more ...
  5. Was easy to make. I used left over roasted chicken so I only simmer it about 30 minutes.. Also cooked it in my cast Dutch oven. Loved it and wii definitely make this again and often.
  6. This was really good. I used costco's shredded rotisserie chicken breasts and regular cream cheese. We added crispy tortilla strips to the top when we served it . They were a great addition. I cooked it on the stovetop since the chicken was already cooked. Family loved it and there was less than a 1/2 - Read more ...
  7. This recipe was excellent. I didn’t change a thing. My wife has 0 tolerance for spiciness. She took one bite and declared it was too spicy for her. I, on the other hand, thought it had the right level of bite to it. I have to eat the whole batch myself...tough job but someone has - Read more ...
  8. I made it with rotisserie chicken in a pot on the stove, but it was still amazing. I am going to try it in the slow cooker next time.
  9. I wish you had a rating higher then Five stars. This recipe is excellent! I did add black beans and kidney beans because my daughter said otherwise it wasn’t taco soup. I added more taco seasoning, and I used cream cheese instead of what they recommended. It’s what I had, and the stores are pretty - Read more ...
