Easy Chicken Chili

Recipe by Sandyg61

I first made this chili during a snowstorm when I had to use what was in the house. It has become a family favorite. You can vary the spice by using hot or mild salsa instead of medium.

I had everything in the house for this already except the cannellini beans but I did have pinto beans so I used them instead. For the seasoning mix I used recipe #38719. Just for a textural preference (shredded vs. cubed), I put the thighs in whole, then when cooked through, I pulled them out, shredded & added back in. This was a very quick and easy weeknight dinner with lots left over for lunches for the week. Thanks!
