This was terrific! I sauteed about 4 cloves of garlic and added it to the pot while the chicken, celery, and onion were boiling. I also added 1 can of black beans (drained/rinsed) and a bag of "Fiesta blend" vegetables which had a variety of beans and veggies along with quite a bit more water.<br/>It had quite a kick, but everyone in the family LOVED it!
YUMMY!! My DD was asking for 2nds and 3rds. This is a recipe I will make over and over. I used celery seeds instead of ribs because I was too lazy to go to the store. Next time I think I will double the amount of Rotel just for some extra "chunk".Fritos were my dipping chips of choice for this recipe. I made this for My-3-Chefs cooking game. Thanks for sharing Terri B!
