MY REVIEW

My chilil verde recipe is very time consuming and I wanted something easy. This was easy and tasty. I did use green enchilada sauce for half the chicken broth.

Very tasty. However, chili just isn't chili unless it contains beans. I added red kidney beans to complete the meal, only because I didn't have pino beans. This one is a keeper!!

I initially made this recipe because I was testing recipes for a chili cookoff. While I didn't use it for the cookoff, it is one of our favorites. My husband loves it. And you can spice it up if you want. This one is definetely a keeper!! Also goes good with the "quick" Spanish rice recipe on ToH. Basically calls for minute rice and salsa.
