I found this recipe on pinterest a while ago and stashed it away in the great abyss known as My Pinterest Boards. This week, I was looking for a yummy, easy recipe to make before Tad’s evening class and was reunited with this gem. I couldn’t find the permanent link for the recipe, so if this is your recipe, thank you! If it is yours, please let me know so I can give you the due thanks you deserve. This soup is just too good not to thank the creator.

It took me 5 minutes to make. Seriously… 5 minutes. Add everything in the crockpot, let it sit for 4-6 hours, consume. That’s it. Does it get anymore beautiful than that? This recipe is perfect for the Fall. With schools having started back up, houses are starting to get a bit more busy than the lazy summer days. However, let’s all take a moment and thank the heavens the 100+ degree heat has made its way out and the orange colored leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, and crock pot soups have made their way in. Oh Fall, how I love thee.

This is the perfect recipe to make in the morning before work or school. It cooks all day and then you get to come home to a delicious smelling house and a complete dinner! I’d say the only person that loses in this situation is the dog… they have to smell its deliciousness all day in the house and don’t get to reap the benefits. Poor poor Wilson!

Crock Pot Chicken and Corn Chowder

2 Frozen chicken breasts*
8 oz. cream cheese
1 can Rotel
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can whole kernel corn
1 packet dry ranch mix
1 tbsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. onion powder

Add the beans, corn, and rotel to the crock pot and mix. Cut the cream cheese into cubes and mix in with the beans and corn. Add the chicken breasts. Sprinkle the ranch and spices on top. Turn the crockpot on high and cook for 6 hours. Shred the chicken with a fork then serve and enjoy!

*I used 3 thawed boneless chicken breasts and only cooked it for 4 hours…the chicken was perfectly cooked and shredded. The soup was a lot thicker but still absolutely delicious!

I served mine with guacamole on top…I definitely recommend it! Cheese, sour cream, and/or green onions would also be divine!

Dig in!
