Friday Recipe: Latin-Inspired Spicy Cream Chicken Stew

I haven't made this soup yet, it's on my list of things to make this weekend. I expect the smell of it in the crockpot will make the whole house smell delicious! As always, or mostly, this recipe came from All Recipes.

Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 8 Hours 15 Minutes
Ready In: 8 Hours 25 Minutes
Servings: 8
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast
3 (14.5 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
1 (16 ounce) jar green salsa
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and
1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, drained
and rinsed
1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn,
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning (I used the extra spicy kind)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
2 teaspoons ground red chile pepper, or
to taste
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
1. Place the chicken breasts into the bottom of a slow cooker, and pour tomatoes, green salsa, black beans, pinto beans, and corn over the chicken. Sprinkle taco seasoning, cilantro, ground red chile, and cumin over the mixture, and stir to combine. Cover the cooker, set on Low, and cook until chicken is very tender and the mixture has thickened, 8 to 10 hours.
2. For soup, leave all liquid in the cooker; for a thicker stew, remove some liquid if desired. Mix 1 or 2 tablespoons of liquid with cream cheese in a bowl, stir until smooth, and mix the cream cheese into the cooker to make a creamy sauce. Continue to cook for 15 minutes, then serve.
