A delicious and flavorful Chicken Chili filled with beans, corn, enchilada sauce, spices and topped with tortilla strips, cheese and avocados. Everyone loves this recipe!

I LOVE all recipes that are full of Mexican spices! This isn’t just because they are so delicious, but it’s because we were raised on them. Although I may not look like it, my family is hispanic and we were raised on all the best Mexican food. I’m so glad my mom has taught me what she knows, and I now know how to make some of these delicious, flavorful dishes. Today’s recipe happens to be a soup that is filled with so much flavor and is so tasty. It’s a Chicken Enchilada Chili that was a hit with the family!

Today’s recipe for Chicken Chili is another recipe to add to the must-try list this fall. It’s filled with chicken, beans, corn, enchilada sauce, cumin, taco seasoning and also topped with cheese, tortilla strips, avocados and whatever else you’d like to top it with. It has a bit of a nip (because of the enchilada sauce), so depending on whether or not you like a little bit of heat will determine the kind of sauce you want to use. We usually stick to Las Palmas green chili enchilada sauce, but you’re welcome to use your favorite kind.
