Chicken Chili, Dad's

Megan Stewart


Until dad made this while I was visiting, I had never had a white chili, or a chicken chili. This is now a favorite of mine!
Note: I used entire chicken, and omitted the fritos. I got the Walmart salsa to use and it was very good (yes, they have the exact flavoring the recipe requires).

  2. Could also be cooked on stove top, but, of course, requires more attention.
