We recently had a party for my grandson's first birthday combined with a family get together. The main dishes were vegetarian chili, chicken chili, and seasoned beef for burritos. I made the chicken chili, combining a couple of recipes I found on the internet. This is the result. Hope you enjoy it, we sure did.
