Creamy, Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti

This is a recipe I have been meaning to share for a while. But it was a recipe that needed to be tweaked. The original recipe I had for it was, well, kinda bland. It tasted fine but it wasn't anything to get excited over. I kept thinking that it needed a little more kick of flavor but I still wanted it simple to make. That's the beauty of this recipe. It is super simple and it makes enough to feed your family and still have enough for leftovers. And it is so flippin' good!
So when I set about tweaking it, I thought I would switch out one of the cans of cream of chicken for a can of cream of onion or a can of cream of mushroom. Both of those were just not working. The mushroom didn't really add much flavor and the onion was way too strong that it overpowered the other flavors. So, I decided I would switch out the can of Rotel (which is basically tomatoes and green chiles) and replace it with salsa. Now I was onto something! That really added some yummy flavors. With just a bit of taco seasoning added - it took this dish from bland to BOOM! This is my original recipe - you won't find another one like it for chicken spaghetti on the internet!

Crock Pot Creamy Chicken & Little Potatoes

Easy, one pot meals are the best kind of meals for a busy gal like me. I am a low fuss type of cook. I want a super yummy meal at the end of a long day but I don't want to be even more exhausted after cooking. And I certainly don't want a bunch of dirty dishes either! That's why I have so many crock pot (slow cooker) meals on the blog. They are made for folks just like me. And it's even better when the entire meal (chicken, little potatoes, carrots and sauce) is all made together. Perfection! 
Now, I know it might not look like the prettiest meal in the world but I promise you it packs a whole lotta flavor. The sauce is incredible and the veggies cook perfectly. I am using my favorite Little Potatoes in this! The Blushing Belle varietals, which are a red creamer potato, hold up really well to the low and slow cooking times. They hold their shape but come out so creamy and tender!
All the Little Potato varietals are triple-washed so no cleaning required! And, the potatoes have thin skin and requires no peeling. The perfect veggie for the busy cook!
I served this meal with a side salad. I buy the bagged salad that has everything included (even the dressing!) It makes for a simple yet spectacularly yummy meal! Did I mention the sauce? Oh good! The green chiles add a bit of kick to this dish. They are completely optional.
