Reviews for Zippy Chicken Chili
"There was no photo and going by the name of chili I expected this to be a chili consistency. It was a soup. It should be called chicken chili soup. Its a little spicy and i went with the smaller amounts of all ingredients. not bad but not what i was expecting."
"With modifidied changes I will make this recipe again. The ingredients are what caught my eye. I doubled the recipe, including the red pepper flakes (don't unless you enjoy hot & spicy). Flavor with the extra peppers is still a bit too bland, so I added 1-2 cans diced tomatoes and possibly some picante sauce (maybe to tone down the red pepper flakes)."
"This chili recipe is soooo good, and healthy I don't think I will ever make regular chili again. I made it for a baby shower, doubling the batch, (although I cooked mine in a slow cooker for about 5 hours). It was gobbled up so fast and as they were eating it made comments about how good it was and everyone requested the recipe. Very quick to make. I served mine with quiche. I did not put the crushed red pepper in ... I thought it tasted perfect without it."
