QUICK PINTO CHICKEN CHILI

When the weather gets cool, soups are created at this household. Again, I used ingredients I had available, including re-friend beans substituted for the whole beans. The re-friend beans gave a good consistency to the chili so thickening wasn't necessary. In addition, I used the smoked paprika, which added a new something also. My husband enjoyed very much. When he's happy, I am, too!
Hope you enjoy, my friends! Janie
