Reviews for Spicy Chicken Chili
"I loved this chili but I used half of the suggested chicken broth amount. I think it would have been good with even 1/4 the amount. Other than that I followed the recipe as written and thought it was great!"
"Very good, but I found it extremely hot even with the lower amounts of red pepper flakes and hot sauce (and I like spicy)."
"Hands down the BEST chili I have ever tasted in my life and I even enjoyed it after all of the time and energy I poured into making it! That's saying something to me! I was even missing a few ingredients and had to either substitute or leave them out - phenomenal!!!"
"I knocked out one of the cans of beans and some of the peppers and it was amazing! Great for a superbowl party! :)"
"I have made this several times. We love this spicy chicken chili. I saute the veggies and cook the chicken then put it all in the Crockpot."
"It is a nice way to use up canned goods, and had lots of kick, yet was not exceedingly special. Good, but not outstanding."
"The flavor was okay; however, it is very acidic due to the tomato quantities. I omitted the green pepper, the serrano pepper, the black beans, and the broth. I used three large cans of crushed tomatoes as I was cooking for a large group. It took 3 hours to put this together due to a cranky can opener."
"Wonderful recipe! I left out a lot of what it calls for just because I didn't have it at the house. I left out all of the peppers, the stewed tomatoes, and used 2 cans of black beans instead of both types. It still came out really wonderful! My husband loves it! I would suggest with the recipe ingredients here, using less chicken broth, as the whole carton made it really soupy. I had to thicken it some with water and flour. Still a fantastic chili though!"
"This is THE BEST chili I have ever made. Wonderful spicy flavor. I used the white meat from a deli rotisserie chicken. My guys (husband and teenage boys) ate until their eyes bulged and then wanted the left overs for dinner the next night! A keeper!!"
