Holiday Chicken Chili

      It's cold outside and now is the time for chili. There are numerous variations for chili and this one uses chicken, white beans and southwest flavors. Salsa contributes a little kick to this hearty soup. Adding a little crushed chips on top really was a great finishing touch.
     This was picked as not only the best soup in a recent holiday recipe contest, it also took the grand prize of a grocery shopping spree. Congrats.
