Delicious Chicken Barley Chili

“This is a nice hearty meal that goes together very quickly. You can see how easy this recipe is to adjust for your family’s “spicy” tolerance. None of these ingredients are ever really "optional" here. I tend to add more garlic and some cayenne if there aren't any kids eating. You can use the seasoned varieties of the beans, tomatoes, or anything else. I love Rotel. I serve with some warmed pitas or tortillas.”
