If there is such a thing as a light chili this is it. The flavors are bright and lovely and it didn't sit heavy in the tummy after lunch. I made a half recipe of the chili and 4 corn muffins (not sweetened) for an excellent mid-day munch and have leftovers and 3 muffins for tomorrow (or maybe tonight?). I'm so glad that I tried this :D.
This is very good! I love chicken chili and this was very tasty. I did reduce the lime a bit for personal preference but other than that, I made it exactly as stated. Thanks for sharing!
DH absolutely loved this! I did make one significant change, and that was to add a can of diced tomatoes to the mix as without it, it just didn't look appealing. Subtle changes are that I used regular corn, and jalapeno for the green chilis. I had leftover cooked chicken, and so by making this super easy by just adding everything into the pot and slow cooking on the stovetop to thicken and intensify the flavor. I left out the cheese and dh said it didn't need it, it was perfect and he's already gone back for seconds! Thanks loof, for another souper recipe! :)
