— Recipe of the Month — 

Chicken Ranch Chili

Warm up with friends and family during these cold winter months. Tired of the same ole boring chili recipes? Impress family and friends with this easy recipe that will have them coming back for more. This recipe is great for easy weeknight dinners, weekends and entertaining. This low-calorie chili packs in 17 grams of protein. When watching my diet I always remove the sour cream and cheese toppings for myself. Get the full recipe and see video here.
