Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

One pot, easy, delicious, creamy crock pot chicken chili. Add all the ingredients to the crock pot , take a break from kitchen and come back after 6 hours to have hearty delicious dinner. 

The best thing about this recipe is, there is no hard and fast rule to measure the ingredients. It is inexpensive and instant hit at home. Though I made a big batch of chili on sunday, trust me it didn't  last long. SO yummy !!
