Spicy Chicken Chili

Homemade Spicy Chicken Chili

It’s Football seasoning and you know what that means – time to feed the crowd! Spicy Chicken Chili for the win because it’s FALL Y’ALL! The funniest thing about Chili is that I used to just throw in oyster crackers as a kid and eat the crackers with the juice from the chili. It’s a whole lot different today – I love chili (without the meat)! That being said, if there’s meat in the chili i’ll just eat around it.
