The recipe says to add sliced avocado “if desired” but I may have to change that to you will definitely regret it if you do not add avocado to your bowl of steaming hot cream cheese chicken chili!! because after trying it without and then with the avocado it’s like going from hey that’s pretty yummy to I NEED MORE! So skip a step and add avocado. I’m doing you a favor here.

This is genuinely INCREDIBLE. We did not add the shredded cheese at the end and it was the best crock pot recipe I have EVER made. SAved as a family favorite by kids and the hubs too!

    Kid and husband approved!!! Alright!! šŸ˜‰

How much salt and pepper did you all use? Also , I cannot get my cream cheese to be creamy or melt all the way. What would be the equivalent amount of heavy cream if I substituted it next time?

    Hey Brittney- I am not positive on the amount, I haven’t done that before!

This is so yummy and if you want it spicier- i add in about one-two teaspoons of cayenne pepper.
