    easy and delicious. I used two cans of beans (one red kidney and one black), and added a can of corn (all rinsed and drained) and a can of diced tomatoes (with liquid). to make up for the extra volume, I used two jars (16oz each) of salsa verde (an extra 3/4 cup), and didn't need to add any water. - 9/23/08

    I made this recipe for a chili cook off for my husband's work and it won #1 out of 13 different recipes and earned my hubby and his co-workers a day off! I used 2 cans of pinto beans undrained, otherwise I followed the recipe. I was great! - 10/26/12

    I soaked the beans overnight. The next morning rinsed the beans, diced chicken (i used raw), diced onions and threw everything into the crock pot and it cooked all day. It was yummy and I froze the left overs into individual servings for homemade "TV" dinners - 1/16/11

    I used a mild salsa verde and omitted the chilis so my toddler could eat it. It was good, but I felt it was lacking something. Crushed tortilla chips may have been the answer, but I didn't have any. I will probably make it again and play with some changes because I think it has promise. - 9/14/09

    I don't do green chilies, but used chili ancho instead, along with tomatillas and cominos. My home canned tomatoes made the right touch. We MExicans do not use spoons either,, MExican food is best eaten using your tort by tearing it into bite sized pieces and pick the food up with it. - 2/26/09
