Chicken Chili

chicken Chili

Ingredients ~

  • 3-4 sautéed chicken breasts, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 3 onions, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 28-ounce can of diced tomatoes
  • 3-4 cans dark red kidney beans
  • 1 can white Northern Beans, drained
  • ¼ cup chili powder, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • Sour Cream

Method ~

Sauté the chicken in butter or olive oil until they begin to brown.  Add the onions and green pepper and continue to sauté until onions and peppers are softened and begin to caramelize.  Add the tomatoes and the kidney beans with their liquid.  Drain the Northern Beans and add beans.  Add the Chili powder, cocoa and salt and pepper.  Bring just to a boil, and then reduce heat to simmer.  Let this all just ‘get happy’ for an hour or more.  Adjust the seasonings as you go.  Serve with grated cheddar cheese, chopped green onions and sour cream.  Crackers are a must.
