O.M.Y. {} Featuring Joanna from Brock Paper Scissors!

Hey party people! I'm Joanna from over at Brock Paper Scissors. Today I'm filling in for Court, while she's down visiting fam in (my home state of) Texas. Cool, right? And, while she's out, she asked me to write about one of my very favorite topics: FOOD.

On my blog, I have a regular feature called "What's Cookin'?", where I pass on yummy recipes that I've recently made. Lots of em' tend to be Crock-Pot recipes because, well, they're easy, and I'm all about the easy. For my visit, Courtney's asked me to share one of these slow-cooker recipe with her peeps (you)! But, instead of just re-posting something I've already done, I took this opportunity to try out a new chili I've been dying to make: Crock-pot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili (say that three times fast!).

Looks yummy, right? Trust me when I say, you'll be going back for seconds...and perhaps even thirds. It's that good.

Here's what you'll need/need to do...

  • 2 chicken breasts (mine were frozen)
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can corn, undrained 
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 package ranch dressing mix 
  • 1 tsp cumin 
  • 1 tbsp chili powder 
  • 1 tsp onion powder 
  • 1 8 oz package 1/3 less fat cream cheese

  1. Place chicken at bottom of crock-pot.
  2. Top with diced tomatoes, black beans and corn (undrained). 
  3. Add seasonings + ranch mix, then place cream cheese on top. 
  4. Cover with lid and cook on low for 6 hours.
  5. Once timer goes off, stir cream cheese into chili.
  6. Shred the chicken using a fork, mix everything together and serve.
We ate it as is, but, it would also be good over rice or maybe with tortilla chips.

*Original recipe found here.

Enjoy! And feel free to pop on over to my neck of the woods to say hello! Later dudes!
