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

  2. turn down heat and add smoked paprika and rest of spices, cover, and simmer about 5-minutes to infuse the smoked paprika into the chicken.
  3. Add broth, rotel tomatoes, and re-fried pinto beans. (For this recipe, I use ready made beans, which I might have used for another meal). Stir the pot well so beans are mixed in. Cover and bring to a boil; then turn down to simmer for 30-40 minutes.
