Chicken Chili  I posted my first recipe to SparkPeople. It is a wonderful resource website which is truly free! It was started in 2001 and here is a little SparkPeople History. I have been a member for a long time and it is a great support and very informative site. There are SparkPeople teams for everybody. I am a regular visitor and occasional commenter. I read a lot. So thought I would share that I made a big step by posting my own recipe. Hope you enjoy it! It is healthy and of course Soup is Good for The Soul!
