Recipe by guamswhitest

I noticed most chicken chili's have a very watery consistency, and I love my chili very thick and chunky, so I decided to concoct my own little recipe, instead. The tortilla and cheese makes it sooo much better. I like to add rice in it and cut out the tomato paste, as well.
