Nacho Cheese Chicken Chowder

Nacho Cheese Chicken Chowder

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 (14.5 ounce) cans Mexican style tomatoes, undrained
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can nacho cheese soup
1 (10 ounce) package frozen whole kernel corn
Shredded Mexican style or cheddar cheese

In slow cooker, combine chicken, tomatoes, soup, and corn.  Mix well.  Cover.  Cook on low 4 to 5 hours or high 2 to 2 1/2 hours.  Sprinkle each serving with cheese. makes 6 servings. 
When I get really busy the slow cooker comes out.  Lately my slow cooker has been working overtime.  

This recipe is perfect for those days when you wake up feeling like you are already running behind.  Cut the chicken up the night before, and in the morning it will only take you 2 minutes to have it in the slow cooker.  When the kids get home from school, have them turn the slow cooker to warm, and you will have a meal waiting when you get home.

After cooking in the slow cooker for several hours, the flavor of the chowder is deep and rich, with a mild Mexican flavor that is sure to please the whole family.

Check back on Friday, when I will be posting another 
slow cooker recipe called, Meatloaf Florentine.
