This chicken chili is a recipe that I used to make all the time when my kids were young and it was a go-to when I needed an easy meal for casual entertaining.  But, for some reason, I totally forgot about the recipe and stopped making it.  Then, a few years back, my daughter, Kelly asked me to make my chicken chili and I had NO idea what recipe she was talking about.  I asked was it this?  No.  Was it this?  No.  I was completely stumped until I started going through some old cookbooks.

As I was looking through a Pampered Chef cookbook, it jumped right off the page at me!  Mexican Two Bean Chicken Chili!  Could this be the one?  A couple of days later, I was with my other daughter, Nicole, and I was telling her about the recipe.  She immediately knew, yeah mom, that’s your chicken chili.  Mystery solved.

I’m so glad I rediscovered this chicken chili and have put it back on my meal rotation.  It is incredibly easy to make and has such great flavor.  What makes this chili so easy is that there’s very little prep work involved.  The only ingredients that need chopping are the zucchini and garlic.  After quickly sautéing those two ingredients, all you need to do is add the rest of the ingredients and stir it all together, then let it simmer for a short time to let the flavors develop.

A rotisserie chicken also makes this easy and if you look for pre-shredded rotisserie chicken at the grocery store, it’s even easier.  Using a jar of salsa adds a lot of the flavor with no extra work.  I use mild salsa in my chili, but if you like more heat go ahead and use medium or hot salsa.
