Crockpot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili


Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

Chili is an amazing comfort food and crowd pleaser do to it’s versatility and that it can be served with most anything. Now imagine adding cream cheese to your chili! This recipe is so easy. Its a fix-it-and-forget-it kind of dinner. I was inspired to make it after finding the recipe on Plain Chicken.  First you will need 3 chicken breasts, 1 can of Rotel, 1 can of corn, 1 can of black beans, 1 can of white beans, onion powder, chili powder, cumin and a packet of ranch seasoning.

The recipe is full of flavor with rich seasonings and teens will love it because they can eat it up right after they get back from school! If you are not in any hurry I recommend cooking this on low for 6-8 hours. If time is tight this can be cooked on high for 4-6 hours!


First place your chicken breasts at the bottom of your crock pot.


Then drain and rinse the black beans and add in the corn. Add them on top of the chicken. Next add the Rotel and the white beans all of the seasonings and place the brick of cream cheese on top.



Cook everything for 6-8 hours and then shred chicken with 2 forks. Stir together and serve.

  1. I make this often but want to take it to a friend’s house as a “deliver a meal” kind of thing and I don’t know what to serve it with. Other than tortillas? Any ideas??

  2. I love this recipe and have made it a bunch of times. It’s really good chilled and then used as dip for tortilla chips ?

  3. Any suggestions on reheating? Making it the night before a work luncheon and didn’t know if I needed to add anything when I reheat it in crockpot the next day (for about 4 hours till noon serving time).

  4. I leave out the beans due to not liking beans and put in Mexican velveta and put it over rice my girlfriend and friends love it.

  5. I make a similar recipe (more chicken, two cans black beans- drained and rinsed, no white beans, 1 can corn- drained, 1 can ro-tel, 2 packages cream cheese, chili powder, cumin, ranch, onion powder). It is more dip and less chili with everything drained, which makes it perfect fo our families periodic game nights. We serve with tortilla chips or corn chips, and it easily feeds 15 (as a dip with other potluck style dishes as well).

  6. When does it start to thicken? This is my first try, doubled everything but beans, seems watery, but haven’t mixed yet, still 2 hours. Drained beans, not corn.

  7. When does it thicken up? This is my first try, i doubled, but not the beans. Drained beans, not corn. Seems very liquidy, when it’s done does it thicken?

  8. So I’ve made this several times now…but stupid me read the directions incorrectly and have been putting the cream cheese in after the 6 to 8 hours. It was still yummy. Cant wait to do it the right way….I bet it will be even way more yummy and creamy. I usually serve this with Tostito scoops.

  9. Have fixed this recipe a half a dozen times… Awesome! I like it a little thicker than the original, so I added an extra chicken breast and another 4oz of cream cheese… Love it! Has anyone adapted THIS recipe to an instant pot? Seems like it would be a natural..

  10. I make this recipe a lot. The friend who gave it to me has a large family and knows how to feed a crowd. She stretched this by serving it as a topping for hasselback potatoes. It was so delicious!

  11. I just made this recipe…I needed to double the recipe and didn’t read the comments until after I prepared. I doubled the beans ?any suggestions to add so it won’t be too thick?

  12. NO WHERE do I read what oven temp to set this on……………all I find is to bake 6 to 8 hours but not mention of what temp?????

  13. I have some already cooked shredded chicken in my freezer. How long on cooking time do you think? 2-3 hrs? ??‍♀️

  14. This is one of my favorite recipes! We have it at least 3 times a month. It’s so easy and quick to put together. I keep the ingredients on hand at all times. Perfect for days we leave the house for the day. I usually serve it with cornbread. Delicious!!
