One-pot Chicken Tortellini

This is one of those “it ain’t pretty, but it tastes great” meals.  
Since it is oh so yummy and it can be made in a crock pot (aka, it is super-duper easy), it’s easy to look past the aesthetic.

This is a perfect fall weather supper!

 **Ignore my reflection in the spoon... I try my best, haha


What you need:
- 1 (19oz) bag of tortellini
- 1 lb of cooked chicken (I used a rotisserie)
- 1 bag of fresh spinach
- 1 block of cream cheese
- 4 cups of chicken stock
- 1 can of diced tomatoes, drained

How to:
Combine all of your ingredients in a crock pot (or on the stove top) and heat until everything is combined.  Top with chives and serve immediately.  We like adding Triscuits for a bit of a crunch.

If you leave the tortellini in the crock pot while you're at work, it will absorb all the chicken stock; so if you like your tortellini firmer, add them to the pot 30-60 minutes before serving.
