This was tasty, but it wasn't chili to me. It was more of a southwestern-flavoured cabbage and chicken stew. But that's ok, I was just looking for a way to use up some cabbage, and some chicken! I wound up draining it, and wrapping it in tortillas as a burrito filling. With cheese and sour cream, it was delicious. Very healthy (except for all the cheese and sour cream LOL).
