Reviews forSanta Fe Chicken Chili
"I still make this family favourite, but do different variations...sometimes I add black beans, chopped cilantro just before serving, and/or shredded jack cheese...sometimes we just use it to make burritos. Of course, a bottle hot sauce on the side for those who like to kick it up. I really like Frank's Red Hot Chile & Lime."
"I added cnicken it was great"
"easy to make, but we thought it lacked something.I omitted the salt called for in the recipe and added Spice Islands "Old Hickory Seasoning Salt"; a bit of Worcestershire sauce; and about 2½ tsp. of coriander. That seemed to bring everything to life."
