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

Little tart from the lime. Didn't even add the full 1/4 cup.

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.
