Desserts aside, CL also features fantastic salads, sandwich, soups and spreads. My favorite is their Chicken Salsa Chili. I used to crave it for months on end when I lived in Chicago knowing that I wouldn't be getting it anytime soon! While killing time the other day, I wandered over to the Café Latte website and realized that they share their chili recipe online! So I made it.
I cheated a little and used a rotisserie chicken. I also omitted the cilantro simply because I do not care for it. CL serves theirs with tortilla chips and tops it with cheese, onions and sour cream. I went with a big piece of crusty bread.
Now nothing compares to the original, but it was a close, close second! :)
