I made this but the chorizo I used from Aldi was a bit vinegar-y tasting so I'd add a touch of sugar next time. I loved it and served with scallions, sour cream and sharp grated cheddar and cornbread muffins - it made enough to have next time for chili dogs and a few containers to freeze for another few meals. The combo of Chicken and chorizo is an excellent blend.

This was very good. I used soyrizo instead of chorizo to cut back a bit on calories and grease. I browned up the meats and threw it all in the crockpot for 4 hours

This was a fantastic, quick chili. I made slow-cooker shredded chicken instead of using the ground chicken, but otherwise it was the same. And I always recommend using greek yogurt (in place of sour cream - more for the taste than the healthiness), cheese and Fritos on top.

I normally do not review recipes but this was too good to not review. I made it today and my daughter who normally does not like chili loved it. I will make it again and again
