Flashback Recipe – Southwestern Chicken Chili

Hi Everyone,

I had a post for today, but I am going to hold off until Friday to post it.  Anyway, I couldn’t leave empty handed for a Monday, so today  I am doing a flashback to one of my favorite Crockpot recipes; Southwestern Chicken Chili!  It’s thick, hearty, super easy to make and it’s one of my favorites.  This was the first time I ever had chicken chili and now I am in love.
