This is a recipe I came up with after reviewing several chicken chili recipes and combining several ideas. The spices, especially the cumin and oregano are adjustable. I sometimes use a little more, taste as you go! Every time I take it to pot luck or company dinners, I'm always asked for the recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
