Chicken Chili

I love chicken chili and had to change up my old non-keto recipe to keep up with my way of eating. I looked up a bunch of recipes and combined them to make my new favorite chili recipe. There are lots of options depending on how fast or slow you want your dinner done. You can change up the seasonings and spices to your liking too.
