  1. We love chili in our house and I can't wait to try this one. It's in my slow cooker now! And I love quinoa in chili--it's so healthy and gives it great texture. One nit picky thing though--I think it might be a little misleading to call this a "chicken" chili since there is no actual chicken in the recipe, just chicken broth. That is fine with me since I wanted to do a vegetarian-ish chili today, but others might be confused. Maybe it's just a typo, but I noticed it was one of the few ways you adapted this recipe from the original, so I thought it might have been intentional.

    Anyway, I think your blog is great and have gotten a lot of great ideas and recipes from it! Thanks!

  2. I've made this twice now and love it. It's so quick and easy, but also healthy and delicious. I made it with vegetable stock instead of chicken and leave it w/o the garnishes, so it's also vegan. I especially love that everything goes in together and there is no need for added oil/fat. Thanks!
