I also like the taste of our southwestern chicken chili recipe so be certain to check out that simple chicken dish, too!

Mixing together the chili peppers and the chili pepper add a little bit of subtle heat that is certain to be a hit. And if you really like spice, you can easily doctor up your own bowl and add even more. The end flavor really does depend on you.

This crock pot recipe is a wonderful taste and flavor and you can easily top it with crushed tortilla chips, salt and pepper, or other fun toppings to suit your taste.

This is such a simple chicken recipe to have on hand as well!
