This will be a perfect addition to your game day menu too 🙂 Let’s take a look.

    I made this in the crockpot and used chicken instead of beef but used all the other ingredients as listed—the flavor of the salsa verde and ranch really makes it!! It was delicious, definitely going into the rotation.

    Wow! One thing I know for sure, I will NEVER again make traditional chili. This went beyond exceptional. Only changes I made were because if what I had or did not have on hand. I substituted one can of white beans for 1 can black beans and left out the cilantro and chili powder. Thanks for this delcious recipe. Now I must go and get another bowl. 🙂

  5. Hi Jenny! I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your blog. I have your cookbook and my family has loved many of your recipes. As a mom of two boys, it’s fun to see another mom with similar interests raising her family. Thanks for all of your hard work!
