I love chili and this recipe interested me because of the unique combination of ingredients and the ease of the slow cooked preparation. This was the first time I've tried a chili that involved layering the ingredients instead of mixing them. So when I opened the pot and everything was cooked but sitting there I was worried. Began to mix and slowly, I had this beautiful, thick rich chili that was studded with corn and lovely chunks of peppers. The dish is well seasoned without being spicy-hot which won it many stars with my neighbor and lunch companion. Loved the was the tortilla-corn acted as a binder as well as forming a lovely coating on the chicken. I should mention my one change which was to replace the tortilla chips with 1/3 cup of cornmeal. Easier for me and consistent with the WW Core program. While some might consider this major, for me this was using the chips in their most elemental form - ground corn. Thanks Lainey for the treat.
This was ok! Meaning it was edible!!! I didn't have green pepper or tortilla chips. I had some leftover tostadas that I used. 3 stars for how easy it was to put together.
I made this a few weeks ago and everyone really liked it which is pretty difficult to achieve in this picky little family. I have been all night looking for the recipe again and am so glad I finally found it. I had emailed to myself! Anyway I've cleaned out all my old emails too so all's well that ends well!
