    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

    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 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

    This was awesome. I used chopped jalapenos instead of chiles to add spice. Soooo good. - 12/29/09
