  • Gives me an idea… serve over shredded lettuce or cabbage for some crunch. I’ll be trying this recipe tomorrow

  • Just wanted to say that I tried this recipe and loved it. I plan on trying the turkey burger later this week! I tweaked one thing that worked out well so I feel I should share. Instead of throwing this on some tortillas, I boiled up some brown rice (about 1/2 cup per serving) and served the slow-cooked chicken on top of the rice. It was fantastic. Keep doing what your’e doing. I plan on trying many more of your recipes.

  • Dude I cannot find Cambell’s Fiesta Nacho Cheese anywhere… I’ve been to three grocery stores and I’ve literally got all the rest of the ingredients. Before I start ordering this stuff on Amazon, any suggestions? I’ve found regular cheddar cheese stuff by them, but I have a feeling it just won’t be the same…

    • Hmm! I found mine at Walmart. I believe my other grocery stores have it as well. Cheddar would work too though! I’d first check Walmart (if you have the ones with grocery stores in them).

      • Tried it with the Cheddar. Added a couple jalepeno’s and a habanero… I’ll let you know how it goes when I finally taste it. I love the spice though so I’m hoping it offsets the “fiesta cheese”

  • This recipe is my 2nd favorite to all your crock pot recipes (1st being bacon cheddar ranch chicken). I had trouble finding Fiesta Cheese soup so I bought a random brand in the Mexican food isle of my local grocery store. I highly recommend adding the Mexican Cheese blend, it really adds a lot to the meal. I also don’t mind extra carbs so I mixed it with rice in a bowl to a create a cheesy chicken-rice mixture.

    Keep up the excellent work Derek!

  • Derek- I want to try this recipe but I am gluten and dairy free. Do you have any ideas of what I could replace the Fiesta Nacho Cheese with to make it creamy? Thanks.

  • Hey Derek. I really want to make this but as I am in Australia we dont have that flavour soup here. What could I use?
    By the way I love all your recipes keep making more for us 🙂

  • Derek, loved this receipe! Unfortunately I could only find full fat fiesta nacho cheese soup, but it is still soo delicious! I look forward to making many more of your receipes!

    • Hi Jason! It would depend on that week. I almost always weigh out my entire recipe and portion it out according to my diet. Some weeks I’ll get 10 and some weeks I’ll get 5. Have you watched my creating serving sizes video?
