Lime juice gives this chili a zesty twist, while canned tomatoes and beans make preparation a snap. Try serving bowls with toasted tortilla strips. —Diane Randazzo, Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania

"I needed to add a cup of water it was too thick. it definitely needs even more spice like hot sauce or somethingbut you wouldn't think so with as many spices as it has. I used chopped rotisserie chicken."

"i have made this recipe many times and it is delicious! I use boneless skinless chicken breast cut bite size instead of the ground chicken. I also add a 12 oz can of V8 juice along with the tomatoes. It freezes well and makes a quick dinner on busy nights. We pair it with cornbread."
