This chicken chili has few ingredients with lots of flavor. If you are looking for something quick and healthy, this is the recipe to use. This is wonderful over white or brown rice. Top with reduced-fat cheese and/or sour cream--I do both!

I really enjoyed the ease and simplicity of this chili--but most of all I really liked the idea of using beans instead of a dairy product to make this creamy. What a great idea! I did taste it after cooking and felt it needed more seasonings for our tastes so I used 2 tsps chili powder 1/2 tsp cumin 1 tsp oregano and some garlic and onion powder. I think you could easily customize this with any seasonings according to what you like. I also cooked mine a bit longer than 25 minutes to thicken it just a bit more. I served it topped with a bit of salsa and pepper jack cheese--delicious! Thanks for the recipe! Read More
