Do you love chili as much as we do? It’s one of our absolute favorite meals! My husband, Jeff made the best 3-bean chicken chili recently and I knew I had to share it. So many asked for the recipe after you saw Jeff cooking it on Instagram stories.

It’s definitely a delicious fall/winter staple in our home.. and something quick and easy for you to make at home for those last-minute dinners.

The best part about this chili? It’s thick, chunky, filling and full of flavor! His 3-bean chicken chili is a dish that everyone can enjoy.. even those who may think they don’t like traditional chilis. ;) It’s also great for leftovers.

Hope you enjoy! xo, Kristy & family
