  • ½ tsp. chili powder
  • 10.5 oz. can cream of chicken soup don't add water
  • ½ cup diced white onion
  • 11 oz. can Mexicorn, drained (this is corn with peppers in it)
  • 1 seeded jalapeno minced

These ingredients are added at the end:

  • 6 oz. box Farmhouse Spanish rice (follow stove-top instructions)
  • 14 oz. can diced tomatoes needed to make the rice
  • 2 Tbsp. salted butter needed to make the rice
  • 1.5 cups water needed to make the rice
  • 3 cups shredded sharp cheese divided
  • ½ cup sour cream


  • Add the chicken to the slow cooker. Sprinkle over the pepper, garlic powder and chili powder.
  • Spread over the cream of chicken soup. Add the onions, Mexicorn, and jalapeno. (DO NOT ADD RICE, CHEESE OR SOUR CREAM YET!)
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours, without opening the lid during the cooking time.
  • Towards the end of the cooking time start preparing the Farmhouse Spanish rice in a pan on the stove-top, you will need the diced tomatoes, butter and water to prepare. (If you use a different brand of Spanish rice use the ingredients listed on the box you buy)
  • Shred the chicken with 2 forks, add the prepared rice, sour cream and 2 cups of the shredded cheese. Stir. Add remaining cheese on top and place the lid back on.
  • Put the slow cooker on to HIGH and cook for an additional 20 minutes to let the flavors come together and to allow the cheese to melt.
