Just look at this creamy deliciousness!
Start with chicken breast. Cut it up into large cubes.
Place it in the bottom of a slow cooker.
You'll need some Ranch dressing mix. I buy it in a container but you could get the envelope and measure out what you need...or use the whole thing.
There is a Fiesta flavored one that is fabulous in this recipe.
Maybe give it a try.
Sprinkle the dry Ranch dressing mix over the chicken.
Add a can of drained and rinsed black beans.
Add a can of drained sweet corn. (You could use frozen corn instead.)
Add a can of Rotel tomatoes and chiles.
Place a brick of cream cheese over the top.
Cover and let it cook.
I use the "original" kind but you could substitute the hotter kind
if you like it spicier.
If you really love it spicier, use this jalapenos cream cheese in place of some or all of the cream cheese.
Stir it all together. The chicken is so tender and will fall into smaller pieces.
There are so many ways to serve this.
I will show you 5 fabulous ways.
One: Serve it as a Dip.
I can make a whole meal out of just chips and confetti.
Crispy taco shells.
Soft flour tortillas.
Rice (white or Spanish).
Four: Lovely Salad
Crispy corn tortilla tostada shell.
The tostada is my favorite way to eat this but the salad is a close second.
Really every single way is delicious.
I serve it different ways, depending on who I am serving it to
and what the occasion is.
