Perfect for a fall weekend dinner. Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken Chili is not your average chili recipe!
This is not a white chicken chili! I thought about doing this recipe with white beans and very little chili seasonings to make it a “white chili” but that sounded really boring. This recipe has so much flavor from the garlic, chili seasoning, then the cool cream cheese.
This chili was so darn good I didn’t use cheese (gasp)!
I hope you enjoy this chili recipe. It’s really a must-try, make a big pot of this for game day! Have a great weekend!
