Someone said they were going to make chili today to eat while watching the game and I thought that sounded good, but I didn't have any hamburger. So, I started thinking. I have been wanting to make a chicken chili and see how it came out, so I went for it. OMW!!! This is SO good! And, since I was being lazy, I used canned chicken too! As many peppers and spices as I used, it had heat, but I would have liked it a little spicier. I'll probably add more peppers next time. But, here's what I did today. If you want a nice, hearty, and healthy, bowl of chili on a cold day or while watching the game, give this a try. It's full of flavor and won't disappoint! And, don't let the ingredient list intimidate you, it's not as bad as it looks! Enjoy!

How to Make Southwestern Chicken Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. Put all ingredients in a large pot and stir well. Cook on medium heat for 45 min. to an hour, or until veggies are tender. Stir 3-4 times during cooking to prevent burning/sticking. Adjust heat if needed. You could also do this in a crockpot. Even better!

    Serve by topping each serving with grated mexican cheese mix and a generous dollop of sour cream.
