In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan heat 1 tablespoons oil over medium heat and saute onion, both types of peppers and garlic until soft and tender.
Season the chicken well with salt and pepper. Add another tablespoon of oil to the pan with the chicken and lightly brown chicken on all sides. Season with chile powder, cumin and oregano.
Add tomatoes, chicken broth, beans and corn. Bring to a simmer and cook 30 minutes. Taste and season as needed.
Add cream cheese and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

This can also be made in a crockpot. Mix all ingredients (except the olive oil and cream cheese) and cook on low for 4-6 hours. Add the cream cheese during the last 30 mins.

-For a thick chili omit chicken broth.

-For a bigger pop of heat leave seeds in jalapeno peppers.
