Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good, healthy dinner Made a few changes: doubled the ranch as suggested by others, used roasted New Mexico greens instead of the bell pepper and jalapeño, which I didn't have, used pinto beans, which I cook in bulk with salt pork and freeze, and (gulp) I used Frontier brand ranch seasoning because finding a way to use it was my sole reason for choosing this recipe in the first place. Also cooked rice separately because I made this in the morning to reheat for dinner and didn't want soggy rice. Over all, it was very tasty and healthy and it sure did use up that ranch seasoning. I'm just not sure that ranch belongs in what could easily be a nice pot of chicken chili.
