This was really good! I added about a teaspoon of taco seasoning for some extra flavor. I also used a whole block of cream cheese (8 oz.), and a total of 1 1/2 cups of veggie broth. I cooked it on high for 3 hours, and then 30 minutes after the orzo was added. It was delicious as is, but it would also be yummy with some seasoned ground turkey. Served with some tortilla chips.

Added a cup more stock chicken breast and extra spice. Yummy

I think this would be great with chicken meatballs!! Maybe use cream cheese with jalopenos in it.

We all enjoyed the Orzo dish!

I love this recipe as a Crock-Pot go to. I add mushrooms and whatever veggies I have around as well as some additional hot sauce.

Amazing! I added salsa instead of green chilies and it turned out just as good!

This is one of my favorite slow cooker recipes! I added about 2 cups for shredded chicken, and make sure you check on it during the last hour because it can get dry so add extra stock. I top it off with avocado and lime.

I've made this three times now, and it is always delicious! Do not drain your canned goods. And keep an eye our once you add the orzo so that it doesn't dry out

so very good yum yum. i used a 19oz can of enchilada sause and vegetable noodles and chicken brith so so good

As is, I give this two stars. I had to add 1 cup extra broth otherwise it would've been super dry. I also took the advice of previous reviewers and added spice to this proactively. I added 1 teaspoon of a homemade taco seasoning. With these modifications, it's a five star dish.

This recipe was good and super easy to make! Only thing, I used the mild enchilada sauce and it was too mild. So if you enjoy a little more bite, use medium-hot enchilada sauce. I also found that I needed to add at least 1-2 cups of vegetable broth at the end to reduce thickness.

Easy and simple but not much kick. If I made this again I would add chicken or beef to give more dimension. I served with soft taco wraps and made burritos with all types of taco toppings.
