Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken Chili


It is officially chili weather in Alabama - brr. We usually do a traditional beef chili, but I saw this in my google reader and decided to give it a try. One word - amazing!

It is made in the crockpot - my favorite preparation method.  This only took 5 minutes to throw together before work.  You could even mix it up the night before and just turn the crockpot on before heading out the door.   The chili was delicious!  We both loved it.  It was even great reheated for lunch the next day.





Cream Cheese Chicken Chili
adapted from Tried and Tasty
(Printable Recipe)

1 can black beans
1 can corn, undrained
1 can Rotel, undrained
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

Drain and rinse black beans. Place chicken at bottom of pot, then pour out whole can of corn (undrained), rotel, and black beans. Top with seasonings and ranch mix. Stir together. 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.

  4. I'm making this for dinner tonight. My chicken was not frozen though...should that make a difference?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Briggins810- the chicken will just cook a little faster if they aren't frozen. No taste difference.

  7. This sounds so good! One question is that two whole chicken breasts or two halves? Thanks!

    1. I would assume 2 halves. Otherwise that's a lot of chicken. :)

  14. we had this last night. Winner all the way around!

  15. I have this in the crock pot now. But it doesn't look like enough liquid??

    ReplyDelete
  16. The chicken will make some liquid as it cooks. Give it some time to cook down and if it still looks too thick, add water until it is the consistency you like.

    ReplyDelete
  17. This looks great, Steph, especially all the spices visible on top. I just saved this one to try, it would be perfect for a busy weeknight and I don't use my crock pot enough.

    ReplyDelete
  18. This looks great and easy....thinking I will need to double it for my family of 5 plus leftovers. And I'm wondering how great it would be cooked on high....I need it done in 5 hours today.....hmmm.

  19. I just found this on Pinterest! I wish I was having it for dinner tonight! Yummy.

  23. If I wanted to double this recipe would I simply double the ingredients or would? I know this is probably obvious but I am a cook in training;) Thanks

  24. Jason - you are correct, just double everything if you want a double batch. Good luck!

  29. We had this tonight and it was great! It was more on the thicker side and we had it with tortilla chips. We thought this would be great next time spread on tostada shells with lettuce and sour cream. Can't wait to try that!

  30. I heard a couple of my locker room buddies talking about this today and immediately my mouth started watering..too bad I don't have time to run home and get this ready for tonight... looks like it's on the menu for Friday or Saturday though! YUM!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Made this tonight and it was *really* great, especially considering the minimal work needed.

    We used low-fat cream cheese and everyone loved it -- not too creamy or too ranch-y.

    Love the recipe box integration!

  32. This recipe is currently cooking in my crock pot and it smells AMAZING! I made a few adjustments to my recipe. I used black beans and northern beans. I also added some cilantro and black pepper. I can't WAIT to try this tonight. :)

  33. How many servings would you say this is? I'm trying to calculate calories ;)

  39. Making this right now. I didn't have Rotel and didn't want to run to the store so I just added diced tomatoes. It may not have all the spices the rotel does or the peppers, but I still think it will turn out wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  40. How well will this freeze? I like to make individual servings for lunch. Has anyone had any luck?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Look delish! Can't wait to try it. oureatinghabits - I'm in Canada as well, and you're right, I doubt we can get Ro-Tel here. All it is chopped tomtaoes with chili peppers or jalapenos. You can easily substitute diced tomatoes and your own chopped peppers. No problemo. :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I loved the flavor, but it was very thick. Before I thinned it out I thought of how good it would taste in a Fritos or Tostitos scoop as an appetizer......

    ReplyDelete
  43. So good! It is a definitely a keeper recipe!

    1. It's diced tomatoes and chilies. :) If you can't find it, get one can of each (the green chilies should be a 2-3 oz can) good luck!

  45. I made this last night, wasn't paying attention to the size of Rotel so I bought the big can, 24oz and used it all, and it still tasted delish. YUMMY. So excited to have the leftovers are lunch. Amazing recipe.

  46. I just made this last night. My kids and I loved it! Doubled the recipe to fit my slow cooker & tweeked the ingredients slightly (like using white corn w/ chipotle & 1 packet of regular ranch & 1 packet of fiesta ranch). Delicious!!!

  47. I keep finding your amazing recipes on pinterest. I am dying to make this. Can I use frozen corn? I am so happy to be following your blog.

  49. We made this earlier in the week. It was really good! I doubled it and was glad I did, the leftovers where great.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I made a double batch this weekend and sent it back to school with my son. It's so easy, versatile, and very nicely spiced as is. My son likes spice, so next time I'll use the hotter Rotel or add some chopped jalapenos for more kick. Thanks for posting!

  51. This looks so good! Do you cut up the cream cheese into cubes?

    1. Heather - I just dropped the block of cream cheese in and the heat from the chili melted it fine.

  52. This is by far my favorite chili. I've made it twice now. My family loved it, but found it too spicy, so this last time, I used one can of Rotel and one can of diced tomatoes (I doubled it for our family). The heat was perfect!!! Thanks for the great recipe!!

  53. Made this for a chili cookoff at work - it was fantastic. This is the only chili to date I actually like.

  54. Ridiculously good!!! I made this last week and when I was meal planning for this week my husband requested it AGAIN this week! So so easy and SO good! Great with corn bread!

    ReplyDelete
  55. This is great! I don't care for Ranch Dressing mixes, they taste too "fake" to me, so I just used a half pouch of fajita seasoning and little bit of powdered buttermilk 1 tablespoon or so), and it was great. Also, I had frozen corn (loose) so I just filled the empty rotel can with the frozen corn, topped it off with chicken broth to make up for the lack of corn liquid, and we were good to go! When we reheated it the next day, we stirred in broken tortilla chips so it got some additional texture, and that was great also.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love this Cream Cheese Chicken Chili! I have made it more the once now and it is a favorite at my house now. I found you on Pinterest and I am so happy that I did!

    ReplyDelete
  57. This looks so yummy! I am curious to know if anyone has used non-fat plain greek yogurt instead of cream cheese? I might try it, but add the greek more at the end since in won't really have to melt..

  58. This was really good! A friend told me it's even better if you add a can of chicken broth, so I did that. We really liked it.

  60. Found this on Pinterest and made it last night. Sooo good! I used Rotel with Habaneros to spice it up a bit more.. And also used ground chicken so it would cook faster!

  61. How long should it cook if cooking on High?

  62. We found this recipe at the end of May and have been enjoying it about every other week since. For our family, I double the recipe, but only do one serving of chili powder and chilies. Less spicy for the kids that way.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I've made this multiple times and it is so easy and so tasty! My book club LOVED it and everyone wanted the recipe afterwards. With my line of work the hours are crazy and that's why I love that you can thrown in all ingredients and come home to an awesome meal!

  64. I usually don't like chili very much,but this is.excellent!!!! Made multiple times so far and everyone that's tasted it absolutely loves it!! Definitely a keeper!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I made this this week & should have read the comments. My consistency turned out somewhere between chili & dip, so I just should have added a little water.

    I modified it a little bit, as I can't have that much cheese due to salt content & I added a bit more Rotel. Tastes very good, at a thicker consistency, with Tostitos Scoops chips or wrapped up inside a small tortilla shell.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I made this last night and it was so awesome! I kept coming back for more! I think next time i will double the recipe and add a little liquid/broth. A keeper!!

  67. Wow, this is SO GOOD. I don't like to cook, in fact I hate it, but I saw this on Pinterest and it was so easy I had to give it a go.

  76. We tried this for dinner tonight and it was amazing. When it was finished, It was too thick for what we prefer for soup, as I was getting some water to thin it down, my husband grabbed chips and just started eating it that way (not realizing it was soup) So we just had it that way. I love happy food mistakes! Everyone loved it, including my very picky eater!

  80. This looks so yummy. I defintely want to try it, but my husband and kids are so picky. If I don't put the Rotel in it will it still have good flavor? Is there any substitutes I could use instead?

    ReplyDelete
  81. Heather - it will still taste good without the Rotel. If they don't like chunks of tomato, you can puree the Rotel before adding it to the soup. If they don't like the spice of Rotel, just substitute diced tomatoes - you can puree those too.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I am going to make this tomorrow. Can't wait!

  83. This is fab! I was out of Rotel (gasp) but I used a can of diced tomatoes and a can of green chili's. Super awesome! Oh- I also added some Velveeta cheese the last 30ish minutes. I can't wait to make this for a football or family gathering. Thanks!

  86. A-maz-ing! I made this for tonight's dinner and 3 out of 4 of us had seconds. I had leftover chicken so used that, didn't have ranch dressing mix so used an enchilada packet instead. I could have eaten more but needed to go to Zumba. ;) Thank you so much for such a delicious and easy recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I made this the other night for my husband and I and we LOVED it! He was hesitant at first to try it because he said it was "un-American" for chilli to be made with chicken lol! He loved it so much that he asked for me to make it again tonight! I don't have a slow cooker, so I poached the chicken with some onion garlic and kosher salt and just shredded it after it cooked and just did the rest in a pot on the stove. I did add a bit of crushed red pepper, black pepper, garlic powder and franks hot sauce. All I can say is that this was DELICIOUS! This is definitely a keeper!!!

  88. I made this today, didn't have black beans, used white, I have very potent chili and used only a teaspoon. I also added a chopped onion. It was SO good!

  90. Have you ever made this without the cream cheese or by substituting something for the cream cheese? I don't eat cheese, but was hoping to make do without or by subbing...thanks!

  99. This is an awesome recipe and a huge hit with our family. I added some green onions and chopped up half of a white onion instead of using onion powder and turns out amazing! Also added 2 c. water because I like my chili a little more on the soupy side.

  103. I must qualify my comment by stating that I am not a crockpot cook. I like to use fresh ingredients and no "cream of...". I was pleasantly surprised to see that the ingredients didn't include any "cream of..." and decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed! I did make a few modifications - used frozen corn, used 1 can of chicken stock, and did not use the Ranch packets. Instead, I added more spices (1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp paprika, 1 Tbsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper). I served it with fresh cilantro, and it was delicious! Perfect for a snowy, winter day.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I made this for dinner the other night. It smelled SO good while it was cooking! I doubled the recipe and left out the beans, only because I didnt have any on hand but everything else was the same. I used Rotel with habaneros because that's what I had, as well. A couple hours before dinner time, I ended up in urgent care with my daughter but told hubby and son that they should go ahead and eat. Hubby texted me at the hospital to tell me, and I quote "this chili is bomb!" LOL He loved it! It was really spicy, even for me and I love spicy foods but that's my doing. The taste was fabulous. Thanks!

  108. So good! Once I shredded the chicken it soaked up all the liquid so instead of chili we had it in tortillas with a little cheese one night and over rice the next night. We will be doing both again.

  109. This sounded pretty good! I just put everything in the crock pot and look forward to seeing how it turns out! My husband is coming home from a business trip tonight, so I'm sure he'll appreciate it.

    I did make some modifications based on personal preference/convenience -- kidney beans instead of black beans, taco seasoning instead of the individual spices.

    I'll let you guys know how it turned out.

  110. Just made this today and boy is it awesome. I threw it all together in a matter of minutes. I also added some extra things i had in the pantry like canned mixed vegetables, bulgar wheat, and canned green chilis and it turned out amazing.

  122. I made this over the weekend and it was wonderful. Hubby asked for it for dinner again tonight. I did add some chicken broth to thin it out a bit. Next time I cook it, I'm going to add a can of regular diced tomatoes to add more juice and an additional flavor. Great with tortilla chips and garnished with shredded Mexican cheese.

  125. I made this for church last night and everyone loved it!! I needed to make five times the original recipe, so I put 2x the ingredients in my oval crock pot and 1.5x the ingredients in each of the smaller round crockpots belonging to the church. Then once it was all done, we dumped it all into one big pot and served it with corn fritters. It was a huge hit and I had multiple people asking for the recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  126. So if I double it, do I really need 2 packets of ranch (I don't really cook with this except to make dip!). Also what amount of boneless skinless chicken in terms of weight would you suggest for a double recipe? One more thing, since I'll be using 2 "bricks" of cream cheese should I melt it in advance of adding to the crockpot? I'm excited to try this as you have gotten so many amazing comments! Thank you.

  127. Oh my goodness, I just cooked this today and I love, love, love it!!!! I'm not a cook so this recipe was perfect for me...

  136. This was so easy and very delicious! I doubled the whole thing except the cream cheese, I added 4 oz. cream cheese and 4 oz. of plain yogurt. It was awesome even before I added the cheese, next time I might try it without so it would be less calories. I didn't add the cheese until the end because I didn't have any in the house and brought it home from work after it was done.

  137. I have made this for some time now and am always asked to bring it to get togethers. I make mine thick by either draining off liquid or not adding so much and then using it in wraps...delicious

  138. I just put this in my crock pot and now I am waiting. I make one adjustment, because I am not a black bean fan, I used home cooked navy beans. Wish me luck!

  139. Not a huge ranch fan. Is it overwhelmly ranch-y or is there something I can sub instead?

  140. Just made this last night. Huge hit! It needed a bit more liquid, probably because I cooked it a bit too long, but it was still awesome. I'm definitely making it again and I'll probably add a can of chicken broth next time. Either way, this was amazing!

  141. Just used 2 fairly large size chicken breasts (I was following the recipe!) only to find out in the comments I probably should've only used one... Oh well. It will still be delicious!

    1. Well duh, I will just pull out one of the breasts after it cooks and use it in something else. Need more coffee ;)

  142. I made this but only had the "Fiesta Ranch" on hand. Since the Fiesta Ranch is a little spicier, I skipped the chili powder and cumin, and will make it this way with Fiesta ranch every time! Everybody loved it and it was very flavorful!

  143. This us one of my husband's favorite things to eat. I double the recipe to have some to freeze for his lunches at work, but instead of doubling the corn, I add about 2 cups of hominy.

  144. The chicken doesn't have to be cooked first?
