How to Make It

Step 1

Place the chicken into a 4-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with the chili powder and cumin.  Pour in the broth.

Step 2

Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 9 hours* or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove the chicken to a cutting board.  Using 2 forks, shred the chicken.

Step 3

Reserve 1 cup liquid in cooker, adding additional broth, if needed, to make 1 cup.  Stir the soup into the cooker.  Stir in chicken.

Step 4

Heat the oven to 350°F.  Layer half the chicken mixture, tortillas and cheese in a 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Repeat the layers.

Step 5

Bake for 30 minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Serve over the rice.

Recipe Tips

  • *Time-Saving: You can also cook the chicken on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.
  • Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.
  • Flavor Variation: You can stir in 1 can (about 15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained and 1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn, thawed, to the chicken mixture before layering and baking.

    I always make this recipe, got it from my mother in law. It's easy to make and delicious! I only changed it a little bit, added more cumin and chili powder and low sodium white beans! Sometimes I add corn too. So good!

    I needed something I could put in before church and have ready to eat soon after---I did change a couple things--used taco seasoning as suggested by a previous reviewer, instead of chilli powder and cumin--and next time I will add corn & green & red peppers (sweet) before baking. It was a great meal! And so easy! Thank you!

    Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken & Tortillas

    My family loved this! And that says a lot in my finicky family. It is also very filling. Due to my time I cooked it on high for 4 hours. I also used chicken breasts. I served it over minute rice. I used Taco Blend cheese with Jalapeno Peppers. It was a nice choice. It was not a typical crock pot meal...ya know...throw it in...walk away..eat it. But it only took a few minutes to do the final touches to the meal. Oh and a little hint on shredding the chicken. Throw your chicken into your kitchen aid mixer on low and it is shredded perfectly in seconds. This recipe is a definite keeper!

    Easy and tastes great!

    This will probably be one of those recipes I make again and again. I may add extra cheese.
