Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

READY IN: 6hrs 10mins
Recipe by cjcloser

This came from the Plain Chicken blog -- her recipes are usually quick, easy and always delicious! I made this for dinner tonight -- dumped it into the crockpot this morning and it made the house smell delicious all day -- that's a good sign! The only thing I've changed is to halve the amount of cream cheese -- I found that a whole block was unnecessary for my taste. Otherwise, the recipe is hers.

I made this last night and it was good but a little bland for my family. I doubled the recipe and used all no salt added vegetables, substituted one can of Rotel for one can of the diced tomatoes, and used a 12 oz. package of frozen corn for the canned corn. I also added 1 cup of no sodium chicken broth to compensate for the liquid from canned corn and tomatoes. With 4 chicken breasts and a whole block of cream cheese I figure it was about 291grams of sodium per serving. Next time I will add 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper to the seasonings.
