Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

While everyone else in the U.S. seems to be having more fall weather, we have been stuck in the high 90's. It is September! I am ready for some of our 75 degree Winter weather. It isn't coming anytime soon, so I am still using my Crock pot to try to keep the house cool. Let me tell you; our air conditioning bill this past month was $632...FOR ONE MONTH! We have it set to 76 degrees and we have a 2 story house. However, having it be almost 100 degrees for a month straight, I guess that is what is expected her in California. Wish we had solar. 

I was actually worried about this dish. I guess what I am trying to say is that this dish tastes WAY better than it looks. My husband and I were so shocked at how good this dish is. It is now on our list of favorites. It is also really easy to make and didn't heat the house. Enjoy!

I put a little dollop of sour cream on mine, with some tortilla chips and it was scrumptious!
