Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken Chilil

We made this for dinner earlier this week, and it was so yummy and of course wonderfully easy! I baked some homemade bread to go with it, and my hubby and I enjoyed the leftovers yesterday for lunch.  I loved that it was so simple and included simple basic ingredients, and we’ll definitely be making it again soon!

Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken Chili


  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can corn, undrained
  • 1 can Ro Tel
  • 1 package Ranch Dressing Mix
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 8 oz. package light cream cheese
  • 2 chicken breasts


  1. Drain & rinse black beans.
  2. Put chicken in the bottom of the crockpot, then add the corn and black beans.
  3. Add seasoning and ranch mix, stir together.
  4. Place cream cheese on top of everything.
  5. Cook on low 6-8 hours.
  6. After it's cooked all day, shred chicken and mix all ingredients together well.
  7. Enjoy!

  2. Tried this recipe and it was great! Will definitely make again.

  3. Just one question, I'm on a 1200 calorie diet, so what would the calorie count be for this dish. I would love to make this.

    This sounds WONDERFUL except I don’t care for the flavor of ranch dressing. Any ideas on a possible substitute?
