My "cackling" good chicken chili, with pinto beans and barley.
a revised 1949 recipe from mom's ole recipe box.
I revised it for today's tastes. With no beef and added a few new ingredients for a wonderful new South West Flavor, with chicken legs, and barley.
A healthy alternative.
And finger licking good!
