So quick, so easy! I usually get chicken chili from a fast food restaurant our here on the west coast, but this recipe will have me dropping that. Th green chilies are great, but not enough heat for me, so the cayenne steps in nicely. Some tortilla strips added to the top gives a great crunch to this chili.

Hard to be mad a a chili you can have ready this quickly. I liked using the Ancho powder. Seemed to give a boost in replacing the longer stewing time you normally use for chili. Definitely have this in your arsenal for using those rotisserie chickens to make quick dinners.

Easy, tasty, healthy - even the kids enjoy it. To make this recipe even quicker, I used a taco seasoning packet. Top with lime-enhanced sour cream and cilantro - but only if you have extra time, as it doesn't need it. If you have tortilla chip crumbs, throw those on top to add a little salty crunch!
