  • 1 (4 oz.) can chopped green chilies
  • 1/2 cup green salsa

I have been looking for a good chicken chili recipe and I finally found one. I actually came across it on another blog that I follow, Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers and love it! Thanks Natalie! I did have to change it around a bit due to what I had on hand, I’ll give you that version because it was good!


In a large pot, heat oil to med/high. Add garlic and saute about 2 min. Next add the chilies, chicken, oregano, salsa, cayenne, and cumin. Let that saute about 2 min. Next add the rinsed beans and the stock. Stir, bring to a boil, then let simmer covered for about 1.5 – 2 hours. When done, stir in the shredded cheese (2 Cups) until melted. Serve with more shredded cheese on top!
