For the Slow Cooker Santa Fe Chicken – you start with frozen chicken breasts. I always use the slow cooker liners now – it just makes clean up SO MUCH EASIER!
Then on top – you just pile the rest of the ingredients – corn, black beans, ranch dressing mix, cumin, chili powder and onion powder. I gave this a quick stir just to mix it up a little.
Then – top it off with a block of cream cheese. How can that be bad – right? Then you let it go for 6 hours…
This Slow Cooker Santa Fe Chicken is great on rice, a baked potato or even as a dip with scoops chips! It’s very versatile and I guarantee your leftovers won’t last long in the house.
