  10. Tips:
  11. I have also made this in a crock pot by just adding all ingredients, except cheese, and cooking on low for about 4-6 hours, or until chicken is done. Leave breast whole for cooking, then just scoop out, debone and chop up, then return to crock pot. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and shredded cheese on top with tortilla chips...YUM
This is very good recipe. My family loves this and I usually have the ingredients on hand.
