Could not tell ingredients were reduced fat/calories. I would not use the slow cooker again. Instead I would heat in the oven until cheese is melted on top. The slow cooker seemed to dry it out so it wasn't very creamy like a dip should be, (if it cools you can always heat again in the microwave.) I did leave it in the cooker for the duration of a football game, so that could be why it dried out. I also used frozen checken breast chunks instead of canned chicken. My kids loved it and I made it into a sandwich similar to a tuna melt the next day. It was wonderful!

Made no changes to this recipe. It didn't last long! Nobody knew that the ingredients were fat free. Will use this as the "go-to" dip for parties. Any talk about easy!
