3 Bean Chicken Chili by Nor

Nor M.


I'm trying to eat a little healthier lately. I decided to create a chili with ground chicken breast. You may use regular ground chicken found in the grocery store. This chili is chunky and has just a hint of heat. Believe me! You will not miss the ground beef at all. My family and I loved it. Serve topped with Mexican cheese. Serve with Tortilla chips for dipping. Enjoy!
