My sister, Ann, hates to cook but has several delicious recipes in her repertoire that she makes again and again. This is one of those recipes. It is a little different from most chicken chilis as it includes black beans and beer and olives. Excellent comfort food! Enjoy.

We loved the warm, rich flavour of this chili! It wasn't very spicy so I upped the cumin a bit for our tastes. Very healthy and tasty!

This was good but very different for us. I followed the recipe as written except I used a can of white corn. I used Budweiser and we thought the beer taste was a bit overpowering (not sure if it was my choice of beer or what but that is what hubby drinks so that is what I used :) )
