Chicken Taco Chili

This chili is very good and super filling. It’s a great recipe that will leave you full for the remainder of the night. It also makes great left overs. Although I deviated from the original recipe a bit to suit our needs I think it turned out fantastic. It’s a super hearty recipe. Although we are eating it during the summer it would make a great recipe on a winter night. 

Serving it during the summer? Add one cup of the warm chili over a bed of lettuce for a chili salad. Delicious! If you are following Weight Watchers PointsPlus this recipe is 4 points for 1 cup, serve it with ½ cup of cooked quinoa for an additional 2 points.
