mexican SB chicken chili

Chili I got you down. I’ve never made so much chili in my life this year, with all this rain and excuses to curl up on the couch and warm by the fire… This time it was for our SuperBowl 50 party. Shredded chicken (from my broth), fresh corn on the cob, onions, cilantro, black…
