Slow Cooker Creamy Mexican Chicken

Ever have one of those days where you have a limited amount of food left in your house and you just kind of slap everything together? I’ve been so busy with work lately I pretty much just through everything that made sense into a slow cooker and came up with this pleasant surprise. I’ll keep this short and sweet because work beckons.

Tip: The Rotel was a bit too spicy for my little one but does provide a nice spice to the dish for grownups. Used diced tomatoes instead for the little folks who can’ eat spicy foods yet.
