Slow Cooker Southwestern Shredded Chicken

Zest up your dinner with this delicious Southwestern Shredded Chicken!

I know you've all seen that Philadelphia Cooking Creme near the cream cheese at the store by now!  There are always a lot of good sales on it, and usually some good coupons too!  Best of all.....I've found a way to use it in the slow cooker!

This dish can be easily served many different ways.  It would be great on a salad, on tortillas, on nachos, over rice, or even over some noodles. You can kick it up another notch by adding your favorite toppings to it, however you choose to serve it.  At dinner, you can put out some hard and soft taco shells, some nacho chips, lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, black beans, corn, salsa, etc. and let your family each "make thier own dinner!"  Can't go wrong with that!

I hope you enjoy this recipe!
