With the weather turning slightly cooler, I thought this sounded like a good recipe to make.

Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

2 chicken breasts, still frozen

1 can Rotel tomatoes

1 can corn kernels, do not drain

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 pkg. Ranch dressing mix

1 TBL cumin

1 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. onion powder

8-oz pkg. cream cheese

Put the chicken in the crock pot. Top with the tomatoes, corn, the drained and rinsed beans, ranch dressing, cumin, onion and chili powders.

Stir to combine then top with the cream cheese.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours, stirring one or twice to blend in the cheese.

Shred the chicken into large pieces and serve over rice, in tortillas or taco shells.

If using rotesserie chicken, dump everything together and cook 45 minutes.
