Crockpot Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti

Time for another crockpot recipe found on Pinterest!  This pin jumped out at me because of the caption.  Something to do with cheese and crockpots.  If either of those are involved, I'm in.

This was easy and super tasty.  I will make it again and again......... 

Crockpot Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti
(copied from original source)

16 oz dry spaghetti, cooked
1 lb Velveeta 
2 cups cooked, chopped chicken
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can of petite diced tomatoes
4 oz can of mild green chilies
4 oz can mushroom stems & pieces, drained
1/2 cup water
1 small onion, diced 
salt & pepper to taste

Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and mix well. Cook on LOW for 2-3 hours.

My notes:
  • I'll give you one guess which ingredient I left out.  Yep, tomatoes.  And it was just fine.  I think some fresh, diced tomatoes on top would be nice, but I just can't do cooked!
  • I did not put in an entire brick of Velveeta.  That felt, um, wrong.  I started with half, and as it melted I added a few more slices.  In the end, it was Velveeta-y enough.
  • I did not add the pasta to the crockpot.  I plated the pasta and ladled the chicken mixture on top.
  • I was able to freeze a monstrous portion of the sauce (without pasta) and still have leftovers.  It makes A LOT! 
  • It was even better leftover!

And when the mister will eat something leftover, then you know it's good!
