  1. Nice picture! We love chili at our house. I usually make beef chili but vegetarian is also a hit!

    I serve it in bowls but I also sneak it past my son as taco filling, too which is convenient. He’s also a big taco salad fan.

  2. This looks totally yummy! I will totally make this for my hubby as part of my big meal I’m making for him for our 10th anniversary this week.

    Since he already surprised me with a gorgeous diamond necklace from http://www.idonowidont.com as an early anniverdsary present,

    I needed an awesome recipe to start off my big meal and this is perfect, he loves chili, thanks!

  4. Yep, going here Tuesday night…scout night and everyone is on the run, fired up chicken chili sounds like a great scoop and eat meal for the guys…thanks!

  5. this looks thick enough for me to stuff in tortillas or a pita with some plain yogurt for a quick lunch the next day. and i see a lot of room for adaptation since you nailed down the basic spices & flavors instead of the yucky packaged stuff.

    thanks for sharing this one!
