Mexican Style Crockpot Creamy Chicken Soup

This Mexican Style Crockpot Creamy Chicken Soup is a little spicy and a lot creamy! Cream cheese makes this soup thick and hearty and jalapenos give it the perfect amount of heat.

Mexican Style Crockpot Creamy Chicken Soup

Last week I was on a soup kick; I made two delicious soups during the week. It was a chilly week in Florida so I took advantage of it. Did you make any soups last week? If so, what kind did you make?

While browsing through a few blogs last week, I found a clam chowder recipe over at The Kitchen is My Playground that used cream cheese in the soup. I thought this was a pretty awesome idea so I wanted to make a soup that incorporated cream cheese into the ingredients. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know I love spicy foods. If you haven’t been following long or if you’re new here, let me introduce myself. Hi, I’m Julie and I’m a spiceaholic! ┬áSo of course, I decided to make a spicy soup. I hope you enjoy this recipe!

  7. Spicy soup, on a chilly day that’s going to warm you right through and the cream cheese is inspired.

  8. Hi, this recipe looks fab! I’ve bought all the stuff to try it but two quick (possibly dumb) questions – 1) do you need to cut up the chicken breasts before putting in the crockpot and 2) when does the water go in?

  9. Made this for dinner tonight (less the peppers), super tasty! I used half the cream cheese, just because, but otherwise, spot on. Thanks!
