Mama’s Chicken Chili

How to make Mama’s Chicken Chili

A healthy option to your traditional ground beef chili recipe.  You can’t beat the convenience of rotisserie chicken, especially on a busy weeknight.  Chicken is a heart-healthy alternative to beef.  If you want to make this a completely plant-based meal, the beans provide plenty of satisfying fiber and protein.  Toss the ingredients into your slow cooker and within a few hours, a delicious and nutritious meal is ready to be served!  Our family tops Mama’s Chicken Chili off with chopped avocado, freshly grated cheddar cheese, and sweet cornbread.  Enjoy!
