Notes

TIP: For a vegetarian chili, omit the chicken and stir in a drained 15 to 16-ounce can of black beans instead!

  • 5 Tablespoons butter, such as Country Crock® Spread, divided
  • 2 corn tortillas, cut into small wedges
  • 12 Ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into small chunks
  • 1 1/4 Cup fresh corn kernels
