Fiesta White Chili

1 can black beans
1 can corn, undrained
1 can Rotel, undrained
1 package ranch dressing mix
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1- 8 oz. package light cream cheese
2 chicken breasts

*This is a crock-pot or slow cooker recipe*
Cook and shred the chicken first. Then drain and rinse the black beans. Place the chicken in the bottom of the pot, then corn, Rotel, and black beans. Top all of this with the chili and onion powders and the ranch mix. Stir. Place the cream cheese on the very top. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!:)

*If you want the chili to be thick, add some brown rice in the mixture but watch the chili carefully and add water as needed. 

I only remembered to take this picture before cooking the chili. I will try to remember to take a picture of the finished chili next time.
