This Southwest Chicken Chili recipe from Red Gold Tomatoes takes only 30 minutes to make. It’s not your typical thick chili. It’s more of a soup consistency full of zesty southwest spices that you are sure to love. I created a fun chili bar with shredded cheese, guacamole, sour cream and tortilla chips. I show just how easy this recipe is in this cooking segment on Show Me St. Louis, New Channel 5.
