Chicken Chili with Black Beans Recipe

Chicken Chili with Black Beans Recipe

Because it looks different than traditional chili, my family was a little hesitant to try this dish at first. But thanks to full, hearty flavor, it's become a real favorite around our house. I like to serve it with warm corn bread. —Jeanette Urbom, Louisburg, Kansas

"This was a very good base however needed a extra spice,cayenne, lime, beans and corn. Guess I turned chili into mexican veggie soup!

I used ground chicken and boneless thighs.
thanks for sharing !"

"This chili has a very good flavor but, red meat lover that I am, I missed the beef. I will most likely use this recipe again, either substituting beef for the chicken, or leaving it as is for my husband, who prefers the chicken."

"Amazing! I prefer it with ground chicken breast and in a slow cooker so i skip the oil but it is still the best I've ever had and it's nothing but healthy."

"One of our favorite chili recipes. For a hotter version, I add 1/4 teaspoon of white pepper."
