  • Non-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 3 whole chicken breasts about 30 oz total
  • 2 15.5 oz can tomatos and green chilis
  • 1 15. 5 oz can black beans drained (ok to substitute other kinds of beans)
  • 1 15.5 oz can whole kernel corn drained
  • 1 packet ranch seasoning mix
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 8 oz pkg cream cheese cut into 1 " pieces
  • Fresh cilantro optional
  • Fresh avocado optional
  • sour cream optional
  • corn chips optional


  • Spray inside of 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. 
  • Lay the chicken breasts in the bottom of the crock pot
  • Pour in the rest of the ingredients EXCEPT the cream cheese.  Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or HIGH for 4 hours. 
  • Remove the chicken breasts from the chili, shred with two forks and replace the shredded meat and any juices back into the crock pot.  
  • Add the cream cheese pieces, stir well, replace the lid and cook on HIGH for another 30 minutes until the cream cheese melts.  
  • Stir well, Serve.  Top with chopped cilantro, avacado, green onions, sour cream and chips.  


  • If you are concerned about the spice level, substitute the tomatoes and green chilis with diced tomatoes.
  • Do you like a thicker chili?  Then drain all of the canned goods well first before adding to the crockpot. 
  • If you prefer to use rotisserie chicken, shred it and add it when you add the cream cheese. 
  • It is fine to substitute other types of beans for the black beans. Just use the same amount.  Drain well! 
Pro Tip:  Make sure to add all of the juices from the shredded chicken breasts back to the crockpot, this adds a LOT of flavor!
