There’s nothing like a hot bowl of spicy chili this time of year.
Then again, it’s also the perfect meal for busy, on-the-go nights.
Or for football parties so everyone can dig in.
In fact, this was SUCH A HIT with our family that we finished TWO crock-pot fulls over the weekend—and I have a feeling my Crock-Pot Chicken Chili will become your new favorite recipe, too!
To get started, assemble your ingredients and grab your crockpot.
This can also be made on a stove (but then you can’t set it and forget it) or in an Instant Pot if you’re really short on time!
This is the traditional chili flavor trifecta… but for this one we’re going to add a little extra kick with the Ranch and White Chicken Chili seasoning packets!
You can use any level of heat you want with your tomatoes and green chilies. I love HOT but spice it to your family’s preferences.
First add your chicken breasts to the bottom of the crock-pot. Next add your beans, corn, and tomatoes.
This recipe is honestly so easy that it takes 10-15 minutes tops to gather everything, open and rinse your beans and corn and dump everything in.
Then your spices…
Pour in your chicken broth and add your cream cheese…
And give it a good mix to incorporate…
Then set it for 6-8 hours on LOW… or 3-4 hours on HIGH. And wait… it’ll be worth it!
When it’s done, spoon it into your bowl, add a little fresh cilantro if you want and top with the Fritos for a salty crunch!
