Creamy Mexican Chicken

What's easier than a meal you can pop in the crock pot and let that do the work?!  I found this recipe online and LOVED it!  My boyfriend loved it too.... You can eat it alone, or serve it over rice.... Would also make fantastic filling for a burrito!   We ate ours sans rice or tortilla - but topped it with some shredded Mexican blend cheese, and my boyfriend put some Fat Free Sour Cream on his.  Delish!

1lb boneless chicken breast (I put mine in frozen)
1/2 cup salsa (any variety)
1 bag frozen corn
1 can black beans - drained & rinsed
1 can diced tomatoes w/chilis
chili powder
salt & pepper
1/2 block reduced fat or fat free cream cheese
1 small onion, diced

Add chicken to crock pot - and then add all other ingredients - except cream cheese - plus some water.  Cook on high 3-4 hours, on low 7-8 hours. 
Then, shred chicken - and mix in cream cheese, cook another 15-20 minutes
