Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chili Recipe

I love how easy and delicious this recipe is. You can just throw your frozen chicken breasts and other ingredients into your slow cooker and a few hours later you have an amazing dinner waiting for you!
Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chili Recipe:
(Recipe from Eat Cake For Dinner)

1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
1 can corn, undrained
1 can Rotel (tomatoes & gr. chiles), undrained
1 pkg. ranch dressing mix 1 tsp. cumin
1 Tbl. chili powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
2 chicken breast halves or 5 tenders, frozen

Place chicken in bottom of slow cooker. Combine beans, corn, Rotel, ranch seasoning, cumin, chili powder and onion powder and pour over chicken. Place stick of cream cheese on top. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Stir cream cheese into chili. Use 2 forks and shred the chicken. Stir together and serve. Yield: 3-4 adult servings.

*This does have a little bit of spice to it, so you may want to try plain diced tomatoes rather than Rotel with green chiles or a little less chili powder.

    Made this tonight with hamburger instead of chicken (the comment above got me curious) and it turned out delish! I went ahead and browned my ground beef first and drained off the grease before putting it in the crockpot. Otherwise I followed the directions and cooked it on LOW for about 6 hours. Not sure if this is technically a Mexican dish, but we had it as a tortilla chip topping/dip and really liked it!

    I made this last night and it was great! My husband and I both loved it. I’d like to make it for a church dinner soon. If I doubled or tripled the recipe, how long would it need to cook?

      If you double or triple the recipe you may need to use a big slow cooker. The will help it cook evenly by distributing the heat where it will be quite full. Just be sure your chicken is thoroughly cooked. You may just need to go an hour or so longer. Just depends on the chicken. With a big slow cooker it may not take any extra time at all. 6 to 8 hours on low.
