Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 2 4.5-ounce cans green chiles undrained (I like this brand.)
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 8 ounces cream cheese cubed (I like this brand.)

Instructions

  • I always like to use a liner in my slow cooker for easier cleanup. Add the liner, then layer chicken breasts, green chiles, garlic, pepper, salt, and cumin. This is my favorite slow cooker.
  • Cook on low for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Remove the chicken and add the cream cheese to the slow cooker. Replace the top to allow the cream cheese to soften and melt. While it melts shred the chicken with 2 forks.
  • Whisk the cream cheese mixture until it smooth. Return the chicken to the slow cooker and stir.
  • Serve immediately or reduce heat to warm and serve later.
