Easy Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

Hearty chicken chili with a bit of zip from RO*TEL® tomatoes. Cream cheese makes it richer and creamier than a standard broth-based white chicken chili. Super easy to assemble – just throw everything in the slow cooker. This one will stand out in the crowd at any chili cook-off/tasting.


It is brought to our neighborhood chili tasting each year and is the first one gone every year! Serve topped with green onions, cilantro, and shredded Cheddar cheese, if desired.

1 15.25- oz. can corn undrained
1 8- oz package light cream cheese
2 chicken breasts
1 10- oz. can Rotel tomatoes undrained
1 package ranch dressing mix
1 15- oz. can black beans
