Kickin' Chicken Chili

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by AnnieLynne

My low-fat version of chili with a kick! Sometimes I use more chili powder and cumin - it just depends on the day! :) Feel free to modify to your tastes! Note: This recipe makes a lot, but it freezes well.

This is really good. I modified a bit, used ground beef instead of chicken because I didnt have any cooked up and I prefer to use leftover chicken for this next time. Used my own chili spice mix instead of spices stated. Didn't use black beans, used extra kidney beans instead (3 or 4 cans kidney beans instead of beans stated). Didnt use diced tomatoes either since I did not have them on hand. Chili turned out good.
