    Dr. Jenny's Note:

    DH and I made this chili from Normal Kolpas' "The Chili Cookbook" and really enjoyed it. We served it over basmati rice. While the recipe calls for masa harina, I really didnt think the chili needed thickening (it was plenty thick) and in the last chili recipe I included it in, I thought it detracted from the flavor a little bit. Therefore, I omitted it in this one.

      Add chicken, increase heat to high, and saute until no longer pink, 7 to 10 minutes, stirring to break meat into rough chunks.

      Sprinkle in masa, stir and simmer until thick, about 15 minutes more.
    6. 6

      This is a great chili! Loved the addition of the lime and tequila. The list of ingredients seemed long but it was mostly herbs and spices that I always have on hand, so no problem. Mine was quite thick and since I was serving over cornbread, like you I did not add the masa. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2012
