Cheesy Chicken Taco Dip

We're huge college football fans (go Irish!), and my chicken taco dip hasn't missed a season opener in many years. A slow cooker keeps the dip warm for the whole game—if it lasts that long! —Deanna Garretson, Yucaipa, California

    One of our all time favorites! Perfect for any social gathering...not that it happens often, but we've even taken the leftovers put in a flour tortilla, added shredded lettuce, diced tomato, extra cheese

    Great recipe but I start with already cooked chicken - otherwise it takes hours to cook ??
