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!

Gluten-Free Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili
adapted from plain chicken
1 can black beans
1 cup frozen corn
1 can Rotel Tomatoes with chili's, undrained
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp basil
1 tsp dill
1 tsp chives
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp cumin
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 8 oz package cream cheese
2 large chicken breasts
*optional sour cream
Drain and rinse black beans. Place chicken at bottom of pot, then pour in one cup of corn, rotel, and black beans. Top with seasonings and place cream cheese on top. 
Cover with lid and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Stir cream cheese into chili. 
Use 2 forks to shred chicken. Stir together and serve. 
I put a little dollop of sour cream on mine, with some tortilla chips and it was scrumptious!

  1. Hello! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.

    Does building a well-established website such as yours require
    a lot of work? I'm brand new to running a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd
    like to start a blog so I can share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or
    tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

  2. Hello! Creating a blog isn't much work. It is however a lot of work creating posts. If all you want to do is write like you do in your diary, then it won't take much more effort than just writing. If you plan to do daily posts and have readership, then yes, it can be a full time job. It is a labor of love for me. Blogger makes it very easy. It takes 5 minutes to create a blog. Go to google and type in "create a blog on blogger". Fill in a few things and you are done.

    1. Ramona you made me smile with your comment because it came in as I was reading your lemongrass Curry recipe. YUM! Your ears must have been ringing when I said "OH YUM!" out loud.

      Let me know what your family thinks. My husband had me make more so he could take it to work. It really is that good! And SO easy!

  6. Your ingredients list says 1 cup of frozen corn then the directions say a can. Which is it?

  7. I use one cup frozen, but you can use 1 cup fresh or 1 can.

  8. It's still worded as canned. Confusing.
