  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup Ritz cracker crumbs

Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder, generously. Place in crock pot. I like to use a slow cooker liner for this recipe and anything else creamy for easy clean up. Add onion, jalapeno peppers and cream cheese. Cook on low for 6 hours. Shred chicken with 2 forks in the crock pot. Add mayo and cooked bacon pieces and stir to combine.

Combine cheddar, Parmesan and Ritz cracker crumbs. Sprinkle of chicken. Pour melted butter over the top and replace lid. Cook for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve on hamburger buns with extra peppers for those that like it spicy and ENJOY!!!!
