Spicy Chicken Chilli

Share Button

Friday is upon us which means so downtime for our family! Tonight we are having our friends and their kids over to do Valentine’s crafts and enjoy a meal together. I’ve made the kids a simple perogie bake and we adults will be having my Spicy Chicken Chilli.

See that word, Spicy? If you’re a follower of my Sober Julie Facebook Page you may be proud of me for spelling it correctly. Apparently I’ve been spelling it incorrectly for 41 years, I’ve been writing SPICEY. Funny how that happens…

This Spicy Chicken Chilli is a favourite here, we adore jalapeños and the kick they bring. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
