Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

Picture of Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili
I am a soup maker, my soups turn out great and we live on them year round, but especially in the winter. I use the crock pot, (slow cooker) a lot.  I am a morning person so planning and creating supper first thing in the morning is right up my alley.  I love reaching the end of my day and having supper ready to serve.  This recipe will serve 3-4 people, but I need to feed 7 people this evening so I will give you the 3-4 serving recipe but my pictures will show it doubled.  This is an easy recipe to double.  So let’s get started.

Open the corn and drain them in the colander.  (The reason I drain the corn is that, in the past, when I have made something with corn and its juice, the corn juice over powered the other flavors in the dish.)  

Step 7:

Add the corn on top of the tomatoes, and add ½ cup water to provide the right amount of moisture to cook your chili.
