        Great chicken recipe. I haven't taste this, but I am sure it tastes as good as it looks. I am definitely making this soon!

      4. SO glad I found you!Officially 'like' both you & shabby apple on Facebook (would like to love your page!), also following you on Pintrest….Loving the sound of so many of your recipes – can't wait to try them!

      5. Made this tonight over white rice and it was good. I drained the beans and the tomatoes a little. We didn't have any cayenne pepper so I left that out but it was spicy enough for us without it. Thanks for posting it!

      6. Eating this right now and it is so DEE-LISH! I actually stopped the cooking of my chicken only 4 hours into it (had crock pot on high) because I've experience very dry chicken when it cooks so long. Anyhow…love love this and will certainly make again! Can't wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow – will probably taste even better!

      7. Hi Nikki! I just wanted to let you know that I tried this recipe! I saw this pic on Pinterest, and it linked to your blog! I tried the recipe and blogged about it, but I wanted to let you know I used your pretty picture and I linked it back to your blog, I just made a few recipe changes to it. I basically chipotle"izded" it. Not very weight watchers friendly, but still pretty good. :) You can check it out here: http://www.mommyonlyhas2hands.org/2012/02/santa-fe-chicken-chipotle-ized.html

      8. I made this last night. I liked the taste but, the mixture was very watery. More like a soup. Mine looked nothing like your beautiful picture. Also, did you cook the scallions and cilantro with the chicken or put it on after as a garnish?

      9. I am attempting this recipe now, but my slow cooker just died!! I have dumped everything into a pot on the stove with the chicken on top. I have set the stove to low and am hoping it turns out just as good. Wish me luck!

      10. I've made this several times since we found your recipe, my husband and I both love it. Even with draining the beans and using less water in my broth (I use better than bouillon), it's still been a little runny so I remove some of the 'juice' before adding the chicken back in

        I am absolutely in love with this dish right now! I made it and it was super easy and full of wonderful flavors. Thank you so much for all the easy recipes. I also tried the Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes which were to die for. Delish!

      12. Corinne

        Hi! I want to make this for a freezer meal for my husband while I’m away. Can I just freeze all the ingredients or do I need to cook it first?

      13. Becky

        We made this tonight and served it over cauliflower “rice”. It was amazing! Definitely will make again. If you’ve never made cauliflower rice about.com has a video tutorial that couldn’t be any easier. Try it with this chicken dish!

      14. Jamie

        This was delicious! It made enough for two dinners and one lunch for my family of three. Made burritos one night with just a little sour cream and cheese and then made quesadilla the second night. Yum! Ate it over the suggested rice for lunch. That was great too! This is a keeper!

      15. Jade

        HI,
        I love this recipe. I had made this and had tons of leftovers so I put the rest in a freezer bag and put it in the freezer. I was wondering if you had any tips on how to reheat it. I’m not sure if I can put it back in the crockpot or not. Thanks so much.

      16. Pamela Andrade

        Came across this delicious recipe on Face Book. Thankyou. By the look of the other recipes on here, I will be a frequent visitor.

      17. Alicia

        I make this recipe often. Gina, from Skinnytaste.com has made my life a lot yummier thanks to her recipes! I serve this over spanish rice, spanish rice and beans, or I make it a little less soupy and have it on hard taco shells or have even used it at a party with tortilla chips. I usually add more chicken, tomatoes, and corn, and freeze half of it. It freezes and thaws really well. I had a friend in need of a meal, so I grabbed a ziplock bag of this out of the freezer and she and her husband raved about it. I add in more seasoning as well- I usually like to use Tastefully Simple’s Southwest Seasoning. This one is a keeper- 5 minutes to make! You can’t beat it!

      18. Sarah Chavez

        I made this dish tonight and it was amazing! Instead of rice we put it in corn tortillas (saved a couple ww points plus). I can’t wait to make this again and it was so easy!

      19. Madeline Smith

        This is now a family favorite! My husband asks for this all the time. Every time he comes home from work, and I have the crockpot on, he asks, “Santa Fe Chicken???” We use a lot more cilantro and we either serve it in a rice bowl or in a burrito with rice (and chicken bouillon). Delish!! Thanks for the recipe!

      20. Ryan

        This was really good, and super filling! I left out the cilantro and forgot the scallions, may have been better with scallions, but awesome regardless, definitely worth a try.

      21. Meshull

        I have this in the crock pot at this time. I am excited for dinner because it smells really good so far. I have been looking into making things that I can freeze and grab easily for lunch or dinner. Thanks for all of your awesome recipes!

      22. laurie

        I made this for dinner last night, and I added the cilantro and scallions to the slow cooker as directed. when it came time to serve it, they had turned brown and were unreckognizable. how did you get then to look so fresh in your picture??

      23. Tried this today! Threw everything in the crockpot before I left for work, and came home to a delicious smelling house!!! I put this in a tortilla wrap and has some roasted sweet potato on the side. It was so DELISH! Next time I would use less broth, since mine was very liquid-y.

      24. Judy

        Made this last night. A little tasteless/bland. Next time I would leave out the suggested spices add some taco seasoning or something to spice it up.

      25. Amanda

        What size of a crockpot do you use? I have a 4 qt ( it’s just me and the hubby), so I just want to know if I need to cut the recipe down or if it will all fit! Thanks!

      26. Sarah

        I just made this two days ago and boy was it good. I had plenty of leftovers since its just me and my husband, but we love it soo much that we have been eating it everyday thanks for sharing :)

      27. Stephanie

        Made it and I love it. I would say depending on how many people your cooking for you don’t need a pound and a half of chicken.

      28. Laura

        So good!! Made burritos with this, just drained the juice quite a bit and add, cheese, guacamole and sour cream (to your individual burritos) I made this when I got home from work for the next day cuz the flavors rested is so much better

      29. Jess P

        I made this for my husband and I, and it was really good! I only had veggie broth on hand so I used that. It took 3.5 hrs on high. I also added a bit more cumin, topped it with cilantro, scallions, a little cheese, avocado, and a twist of lemon. Yum!

      30. Vanessa

        Made it today and its was easy and yummy! And my kids liked the chicken and commented on the house smelling good when they got home from school. I did add some cheddar and avocado on top.

          yes and she is cited underneath the recipe, but I will also site her above too. Sorry, this was an older recipe when I was first starting to blog and cite differently now with both a credit at the top and the end if I use someone else’s recipe. I will add a citation to the top now as well :)

      31. Making this today. Love crockpot stuff on Sundays – makes the whole day easier :) My kitchen smells great! Can’t wait to taste it. Added some smoked paprika, used red pepper flakes instead of cayenne pepper, and toasted some fresh corn from the cob on the stove for some more depth of flavor than frozen.
