Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili Recipe

For this month’s featured recipe, we are delighted to highlight a delicious concoction from an MS care partner during MS Awareness Month.

Arlene’s husband David was diagnosed with MS in 1997, seven years after receiving a diagnosis of transverse myelitis that appeared with an attack of acute symptoms. Living on their family’s ranch in Montana with their children and grandchildren nearby, cooking has become Arlene’s art form over the years. She’s grown a greater skill set in this art and has continued sharing several recipes and her family’s story with the MS community.
