Cream Cheese Chicken Chili in the Crock Pot

As you know I am in LOVE with Pinterest. I think it is genius. If you want to see all my pinned items you can follow my boards HERE. One of my favorite things about it is all of the new recipe ideas that are presented to me. I saw the recipe for this Cream Cheese Chicken Chili from plainchicken.com a while back and I have been itching to try it ever since. I am so glad I did because it was every bit as delicious as I thought it would be.

It is basically a quick dump recipe that takes only minutes to assemble in the crock pot and a few hours later you are good to go. (Please excuse the Iphone photos...my camera battery charger is suddenly MIA...BOO)
Cream Cheese Chicken Chili 
Recipe from plainchicken.com

Ingredients:
1 can black beans
1 can sweet corn, undrained
1 can Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilis, undrained (I used the mild stuff cause I'm not a heat gal)
1 package of dry ranch dressing mix
1 tsp cumin
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 8 oz package light cream cheese
2 chicken breasts (I used frozen ones and it worked perfect)

Turn crock pot on high, Place frozen chicken in crock pot and top with black beans, sweet corn, Rotel tomatoes, ranch dressing seasoning, cumin, chili powder, and onion powder. Stir that together to combine and put cream cheese on top without stirring it in. Allow it to cook for 3-4 hours. Once chicken shreds easily it is done, and you can stir it all together to combine. Mine took about 3 and a half hours on high, but you could also cook it for 6-8 hours on low.
Makes 6 servings at about 230 calories each.

This chili was SO dang tasty. It was hearty and filling and high in protein. I made up a portion of my favorite oven baked tortilla chips to dip in it. I had a lot left, so I put it in the fridge for leftovers and it thickened up a ton. I decided to heat it up and put it inside a La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat Tortilla and it was a PERFECT wrap.
I think I liked it even better as a wrap!
I think this would be a tasty meal over brown rice or even over a bed of lettuce. I LOVED the flavor! 

Are you loving Pinterest too? I think it is an awesome source of inspiration for healthy ideas and motivation.

Oh my goodness! I made this a couple of weeks ago! Amazing! We put it over rice the first time and used Lime Tortilla chips for the left overs!

That looks amazing. I'm making it tomorrow night even though it will be 76 in Dallas tomorrow (yeah, I'm rubbing it in a little).

I LOVE Pinterest too! But all those gooey sugary yummy looking desserts and treats are not doing me any good! I have found some simple at home workout lists that I have used though. I see stuff on Pinterest all the time that remind me of you. I should make a 'Megan'board just for all those things... :)

Just put it in the crock pot now, but with a few variations...no chilies we didn't have any or ranch seasoning or plain cream cheese...all we had was the garlic and herb small tub...we'll see..I let you all know how it turned out

Alex said...

I made almost the same recipe. I didn't have salsa so I used diced tomatoes instead. The salsa would have been much better.
