Hubby requested chili for dinner – but I had 2 lbs of ground chicken that needed to be used up – so I whipped this chilE up, which was a conglomeration of my Pueblo Green Chile and white chicken chili recipes. It’s pretty dang tasty and ground chicken is fairly economical. If you don’t have ground, or don’t want to grind your own in your food processor or meat grinder, diced chicken breast works great as well.
Season to your taste – we like chili powder and cumin along with S&P in our chili. Some people like oregano or Mexican oregano in their chile – it’s all to what you like. This recipe will also freeze very well – have some on hand for smothering burritos or adding to eggs or potatoes. It’s freezer friendly for sure!
