Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Chili

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Chili


  • 1.5 lbs chicken breasts
  • 10 oz can red enchilada sauce
  • 15 oz can petite diced tomatoes, drained
  • 15 oz can chili beans
  • 15 oz can black beans, drained
  • 1 bag frozen corn
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 8 oz cream cheese very soft
  • Top with: Mexican blend shredded cheese, sour cream and/or avocado


  1. In a large crockpot (I use a 6 quart crockpot), add in the enchilada sauce, undrained tomatoes, undrained chili beans, drained and rinsed black beans, drained corn, and uncooked chicken breasts.
  2. I like to cut each chicken breasts into 2-3 pieces after removing the fat only if I'm cooking this on high (cooks faster/more evenly in my crockpot).
  3. Add in the chicken stock and all of the seasonings. Stir well.
  4. Cover and place on high for 3-5 hours (or until chicken will easily shred) or low for 5-8 hours (again, until chicken will shred easily)
  5. Remove the chicken from the crockpot and shred in another bowl using two forks.
  6. Meanwhile, cube the cream cheese into small cubes (it should be very softened -- melt in microwave) and put them in the crockpot. Stir well and cover. Change temperature to high. Let it sit for a few minutes and then using a large whisk, briskly whisk the cream cheese to melt.
  7. Add the shredded chicken back into the crockpot. Stir and cover. Cook on high until all the cream cheese is completely melted. Stir.
  8. Serve with sour cream, cheddar cheese, avocado, and fresh cilantro as desired. If you only do one topping, to me, cheddar cheese is a MUST!
