Chicken Chili Winner!

And the winner of the Chicken Chili Cook Off is…….Smokey Chicken Chili!

You can’t go wrong with either of these chicken chilies but this was the winner by a slight margin because there are so many contrasting flavors ….white beans and black beans , poblano peppers and red peppers, etc.   Any of the usual chili toppings taste great with this;  cheddar cheese, red onions, sour cream, and cilantro.   Little fritoes are my favorite topping because they add salt and crunch and make this chili even tastier but I forgot them, so add them to your list.

If I’ve inspired you to have a chili cook off at your house, send me your winning recipe and I’ll put it in the running for my next contest!
