Cream Cheese Chicken Chili
Cream Cheese Chicken Chili
I think this chili has just the right amount of chicken chunks, beans, tomato, corn, chilies, creamy, and spice. It really has become of our very favorite soups, and it’s not just ours. One friend shared with me that her children beg her to make it and that makes me so happy. Moms love it because it’s so easy to make and kids love it, talk about a win-win!
- 2 chicken breast, (still frozen works)
- 1 (10 oz.) can Rotel tomatoes
- 1 (15 oz) can whole kernel corn, do not drain
- 1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 package Ranch dressing mix or (3 Tablespoons)
- 1 Tablespoon cumin
- ½ to 1 teaspoon chili powder*
- 1 onion, chopped or (1/3 cup minced onion)
- 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, cubed
- Put the chicken in the crockpot.
- Top with undrained tomatoes, corn, and rinsed black beans.
- Add ranch dressing, cumin, onion and chili powder.
- Stir to combine then top with cubed cream cheese.
- Cook on low for 6-8 hours, stirring once or twice to blend in the cheese.
- Before serving remove the chicken and chop to bite size pieces.
I recently made Cream Cheese Chicken Chili for a tailgate party and quadrupled the recipe filling my 12 quart roaster oven. It is delicious served over rice. You may also garnish with fresh, chopped, cilantro. For my Trunk or Treat friends, I doubled the recipe almost filling my 6 quart crock-pot.
Loving the chilly Fall nights! Thanks for flying by….what do you like to serve on Halloween?
My but that looks good and I love to get recipes that expand to feed the multitudes!)
Thanks Pondside. This is a great one for that.
It looks delicious, and I really love the part about being able to use the chicken frozen. Sometimes, I forget to thaw it. I’ll bet that doesn’t surprise you, does it?
Ha! Ha! Actually Debbie it does. I think you are remarkably together in every way!
Looks like a perfect and warm meal for a ‘chili’ autumn evening. Our Trick or Treator’s will be about tomorrow night. Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers concerning the storm 🙂
I am so glad you and so many of our NYC friends are all safe, a harvest of blessings.
OH!!! That looks so delicious. Thanks for sharing. I think you totally deserve the prize for that one. I’ll be making this soon.
Thanks Tauna, load up your crockpot and then let the cat sleep on your feet. You are soooo funny!
Happy Halloween! That looks delicious! Sending Fall hugs your way!
