Barbecue Chicken Chili & The Ultimate Chili Guide

This hearty chicken chili gets it's sweet-smokey flavor from the addition of Bush's Kidney Chili Beans, barbecue sauce, and spices.  

Happy Saturday everyone!! For me Football, cold weather and chili seem to go hand in hand. As soon as the weather gets cold, I immediately crave comforting soups, stews and hearty chili recipes. Chili is also the ultimate game day and cold-weather comfort food that everyone loves

There are several chili varieties and all of them are perfect for feeding any hungry crowd. It's definitely cold here in North Texas, so a big pot of chili was on the menu at our house last weekend. I love experimenting with different flavors, so recently I took a chance and tried my hand at a non traditional chili recipe that I think you'll love! 

I don't usually step out of my comfort zone when it comes chili , but this Barbecue Chicken Chili turned out so awesome I couldn't wait to share it with you. This delicious chicken chili gets it's sweet-smokey flavor from the addition of kidney chili beans, your favorite barbecue sauce, and a few spices.

This recipe is simple to make and comes together in under 45 minutes with the help of a Rotisserie chicken and Bush's Chili Kidney BeansI'm a huge fan of chili beans, so I was excited to hear that Bush's expanded their chili bean line with three new bean varieties, kidney chili beans, black chili beans, and white chili beans. 

Each one is simmered in a mild chili sauce with the perfect blend of spices. The kidney chili beans were a great starting point for my barbecue chicken chili. If you're thinking barbecue chicken and chili don't mix, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised, because it's really a delicious combination. If you're looking for a hearty chili recipe for your Super Bowl get together, look no further!
