Slow Cooker King Ranch Chicken


There are some slow cooker meals that you make and it becomes an instant favorite.   I absolutely love my slow cooker and I use it all year long.  Some of my favorite things on this blog are my slow cooker recipes.  They are perfect for busy days and throwing in a delicious meal for your family.

My 11 year old is growing like crazy!   He is a head taller than everyone at school and is such a great kid.   He LOVES my cooking.  I can always count on him to eat the meals that I cook each night.  His favorite food on the blog are these Avocado Enchiladas.   While everyone at school was saying that their favorite food was pizza and macaroni and cheese, his response was Chicken Enchiladas with Avocado Cream Sauce.  He cracks me up!

Every time I make something in the slow cooker he has to sneak a taste.  As soon as he took a bite of this King Ranch Chicken, he said, “MOM!  These are amazing!  They made it to my top 5 favorite recipes!”  So there ya go.  Take it from him that this recipe is delicious.  🙂  A quick easy, cheesy, meal that has tortilla chips inside.  You are going to love it!

  1. This looks great! Do you happen to know how many ounces are in a bag of the tortilla chips you use? Thank you!

  2. Do you think cutting up raw chicken would work if you allotted for a longer cook time?

    • I do think it would work although I would not layer the chips with the raw chicken. Just serve them on top of the chips.

  3. Yes I am curious too about what size the bag of chips is. Thanks so much! Looks good!

    I too ALWAYS want the size of a package in ounces (what if we want to substitute something else?).

    Please — how many ounces in the bag of corn tortillas?

  5. Do the tortilla chips not go all soggy?

  6. Kathy Kuehn says:

    I made this last week and it was absolutely delicious. I will make it again and again. So easy and even reheated, it just gets tastier. I had a friend ask how to adjust it for diabetics, I have no clue what a diabetic recipe would look like. Any ideas?
