Southwest Green Chicken Chili

"My favorite foods are those that truly challenge the bland/ordinary! I'm always seeking a taste explosion, using a variety of foods so that my dishes are both delicious AND nutritious! This version of chili has multiple vegetables, seasoned chicken, can be spiced up or toned down, and is an absolute favorite of my family, friends. The best part is that it's even better on day 2 after the spices/flavors have time to marinate overnight AND using Rotisserie chicken cuts cooking time in half! I hope you'll enjoy this very unique variation of chili as much as I do"
