Chicken Chili

Chili is one of my favourite go to staple recipes.  Sometimes, when I don’t know what to make for dinner, I almost always have all the ingredients on hand to make Chili.  Satisfying and filling not to mention easy to make.   This recipe does not contain any real spicy heat.  You can easily add the level of heat you like with chili flakes, Tabasco Sauce, jalapeños, or other hot sauce of  your choice.  Or you can have your family or guests add their own level of heat suits them.  Serve with your favourite Nacho Tortilla Chips for a nice added crunch.
