    I make this in the crock pot with raw chicken instead of shredded. I add all ingredients except the tortilla chips and cook it for 8 hours on low. I add the chips and shredded cheese when served. It's one of my family's favorites and so easy!

    I was searching for a similar recipe I had from Weight Watchers. This did the trick. I added a can of black beans and an extra can of refried beans, because I like it thicker and it adds even more fiber. It was a hit!

    This quickly became a standby. When I'm home all day and have time, I often stew a few chicken breasts or thighs and use that for the broth and the chicken. When I'm short on time, it's cans and maybe a rotisserie chicken. When the grandkids (who don't like 'picey things) are visiting, I often use a can of chopped tomatoes in place of one of the tomatoes and chilies and tone down the hotness a bit. We often skip the tortillas and have cornbread with it. Definitely a winner!

    Excellent; so easy and so fast! I bought a whole roasted chicken, added a can of black beans, sprinkled in some cumin and corriander, used organic chicken stock (in a box), a half pkg low-fat cream cheese and warmed store bought torilla chips in oven. Even had 1/2 of the roasted chicken left over for chicken salad or sandwiches!!
