I love traditional chili, but sometimes it's fun to switch up an old favorite. This is an easy recipe I came up with to use some of the dried beans hiding out in our pantry. The result was delicious! Flavors of a traditional chili, but with juicy chicken and yummy beans. A little fresh cilantro and sour cream creates a perfect dinner.
On another note, the home inspection went great today! We can't wait to move, but are feeling the pressure of packing everything up. However, I think things will go great for us- the cats are a different story. Anyone have good suggestions and experiences in moving change hating pets??
