My fiancé and I loved this chili! It’s definitely different, but a good different. It’s thick and chunky but has the perfect amount of tickle-in-the-throat spice. The added cilantro adds a nice fresh after-taste and I love the shredded chicken rather than cut up or cubed chicken. I have to keep this recipe around for future chili cravings – two thumbs up!
