My family loved this. I received this recipe from a friend years ago but never tried it until recently. It was fast and easy. The recipe does not state when to use the salsa. The recipe from my friend said green salsa. After adding the ingredients it looked too thick so I added the bottle of green salsa to the pot of chili and stirred it in. I also used 2 large chicken breasts that I had defrosted and cooked in olive oil instead of the frozen tenders. It was great! We topped it with tortilla chips and shredded cheese. Yum.
I'm glad you like this! I created it for a quick dinner contest and it got published a few years ago. The publishers changed the recipe a bit. I use chicken stock paste and water rather than canned broth, pre-cooked chicken strips from Costco and add the green chilies like the other comment suggested. I hope you all enjoy!

To say I love this recipe is an understatement! My mom passed this on and its become a family favorite, especially on cold nights! Its quick and easy. The cilantro/lime really makes the flavor. We use scoop tortillas to eat it and top it with shredded cheddar. This last time, I made a double batch on the stove top and then put it in the crockpot to keep warm. It was awesome!
