Ranch Chicken Chili (Crockpot Freezer Meal)

Several weeks ago I attended a freezer meal workshop that my good friend Kim was hosting. She is a rep for Wildtree and I was excited to try this out. I love a good freezer meal so when I found out I was going to get to hang out with my friends for an afternoon while we put together our meals, I was on board!

This picture of the Ranch Chicken Chili really doesn’t do this meal justice. We made 10 meals and this is the one that I was the most looking forward to eating, and in no way did it disappoint! It was so delicious and I look forward to making it again soon.  A funny thing with this dinner: Summer loves to eat, that is no secret, but she would not stop eating this! After 4 decent size bowls and her asking for more I finally had to tell her that she had to take a break! She LOVED this!

Now you want to rush out and make your own, don’t you? Well here is how!

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast or thighs
1 medium onion, finely diced
1 cup frozen corn
15 oz can black beans, drained & rinsed
15 oz can white beans, drained & rinsed
10 oz can “Rotel” diced tomatoes with green chilies, not drained
8 oz package cream cheese, cut into cubes
1 package Wildtree Creamy Ranch Dressing & Dip Mix
½ tablespoon Wildtree Spicy Carne Asada Seasoning
2 teaspoons Wildtree Vegetable Bouillon Soup Base (provided at workshop)
1 cup water

At cooking time: ¼ cup cilantro, chopped (optional)

Mix all ingredients into freezer bag.
Remove air, seal & attach label.  Double bag and freeze.

To prepare: Thaw in fridge.  Place contents of bag in crockpot.  Cook on low for 6 hours.  At end of 6 hours, use fork to pull apart chicken breast or thighs into a “shredded” consistency.   Top with ¼ cup chopped cilantro (optional).  Serves 5.

You guys, no joke that this Ranch Chicken Chili is amazing. I hope you’ll give it a try- check out my friend’s Wildtree site!
