Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

I love an easy recipe for a busy day! You dump the chicken in, a few cans of veggies and top it with my favorite…. cream cheese! Let the slow cooker do its thang and have a delicious and warm meal ready for the family. I got this recipe down to 190 calories per cup! I was seriously shocked. I did my calculations like five times to make sure they were correct! And then it fills you up too! I could hardly finish the cup! It was so delicious and I loved the perfect blend of spices that made this chili absolutely delish!

  1. I love that you put the calories down to the .16!!! It made me smile!! And this chili looks amazing…got to love quick easy crock pot meals!!!

  2. Dont fret if you dont stir the cream cheese and come home and its all clumped on top (and an odd color)…just stir in and it comes out perfect. Gotta admit i freaked out when i first saw the cream cheese.

  3. This is AWESOME! I don’t like chicken in ANYTHING, but I tried this ANNNNDDD…I won 1st place in the crockpot cookoff, it was a hit! I am going to do it for the 2nd year in a row, because we have new employees, I bet it’ll be a hit this time as well! I eat it with tortilla chips, because I like it more as a “dip” than a “soup”. Also, I never spray my crockpot with anything, it doesn’t stick, so I found it a wasted step and I don’t like cooking sprays.
