You could also use your copy cat recipe for ranch dressing mix (which is really good and I love ranch) to make this. lol. thank you. I am wondering how it would taste with Rotel? Might see.

I made this last night for dinner and it was delicious. My husband loved it too! My crock pot is on steroids, so I only needed to cook it for 4.5 hours. Served it over brown rice and with broccoli/cauliflower. Would definitely make again!

This is cooking in my Crock Pot as we speak and it smells and looks amazing. I’m going to serve it over white rice with a side of succotash and I’m really excited to taste it. I love all the recipes that you post. Your crescent burgers have become one of my husbands and my’s favorite dishes. Keep up the good work :)

That ranch package has MSG in it. Do you have any good recipes for homemade ranch dip/mix?

I made this for dinner tonight…but I added bacon…it was definitely a hit with my not quite two yr old I will be making this again for sure! Very creamy, filling and warm on this cold nasty rainy day

Mmmm, adding bacon is a delicious idea! I have a tip for shredding chicken – you can actually use a hand mixer to shred the chicken! It is so fast and easy, since the chicken is so tender from being in the crockpot. I usually cook up a batch of chicken, shred it with the mixer, and then package it in freezer bags for quick use in recipes. A great time saver.

Did you cook this on low or high?

Reply

Linda November 14, 2013 at 1:47 pm

Cook it on low. As a general rule, cook food in a crock pot for 6-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high.

I made this today and added fresh broccoli for the last hour…the times were a little long for my slow cooker, but otherwise this looks and smells delish, can’t wait to have it for lunch this week!

When do you add the sour cream? or is that for a topping? Thanks!

I have two crock pots full (two family dinner) of this wonderful recipe cooking right now. The house smells delicious! Can’t wait to try it! If it tastes anything like it smells oh my God :)
