I made a few changes to this one. I actually won a Chili cookoff with this. Instead of the Green Sauce, I added Diced Green Chili's. It was a hit! The flavor was wonderful!!


This is a very delicious chili. I loved that it contained chicken for a nice twist and the 2 types of beans added nice color with the corn & peppers. Very colorful. I happen to enjoy a very spicy chili so I added about 1/2 tbl. more chili powder, 1/2 tbl more cayenne pepper, 2 diced jalapenos & 1 tsp more cumin powder. I also found the chili to be a little too runny because of all the water. I simmered for an extra 20 minutes and it was still "soupier" then I prefer. Next time, I would add 3 cups during the first step adding water in the recipe but I would only add 1 cup in the second step adding water in the recipe. I served it by topping with sliced jalapenos, sour cream, shredded mexican cheese & chopped cilantro. Will make again...


really fantastic, would defintely make again...
