Chicken-Chili Stew

This is a perfect place to use leftover chicken, turkey or beef roast, which will make this a $3.00 meal.  Or, you can skip the meat altogether if you want.  You can even throw in a can of black beans to add more protein.

We like this soup with tortilla chips.  It’s a nice change of pace from the usual chili, and it freezes beautifully.

This recipe comes from “Keeping Good Company” by Susan Branch
