Delightful Chicken Chili With Beans

My dear friend and Foodie extraordinaire, Correen, has very generously offered to share her delicious Chicken Chili with Beans Recipe with us. Thank you Correen, as usual it is a pleasure to work with you.

I had chicken chili with beans on the brain the other day – the ingredients were in my fridge and pantry, it was perfect chilly weather here in Washington, and my hubby needed something warm and hearty in his thermos for work. Plus I thought it would be a down-home tasty and different filling for my recent tamale making craze!

Once you have cooked my chicken chili with beans recipe let it simmer low and slow, stirring occasionally, so all the flavors meld and the chicken and beans grab onto the savory mix of spices and seasonings.

  1. ¼ cup olive oil
  2. 2 cups onions; coarsely chopped
  3. 2 cups green peppers; cut into ½ inch strips
  4. 3 cups of chicken breasts or tenders; cut into chunks

  5. In a large stockpot heat olive oil to sizzling (med-high heat). Toss in the veggies and chicken, stir the mixture until chicken is golden brown and the veggies are tender; about 5 to 8 minutes.

  6. 1 tablespoon mesquite seasoning
  7. (I used Kirkland’s Sweet Mesquite Seasoning)
  8. 1 ½ tablespoons garlic powder
  9. 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  10. 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  11. ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  12. 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

  13. Remove stockpot from heat and stir in all the seasonings and spices. Return to med-high heat and continue stirring for a minute or so.

  14. 6 cups cooked beans*
  15. 2 15 ounce cans of tomato sauce
  16. 1 10 ounce can of Original Rotel tomatoes
  17. 2 ½ cups hot water
  1. Add in remaining ingredients, gently stirring to incorporate all the ingredients. Bring to a boil, turn heat down to medium and slow simmer uncovered for 1 ½ hours. Occasionally stir, making sure nothing is sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  2. Note: To thicken this chicken chili recipe, this step might not be necessary after slow simmering, mix two tablespoons of masa harina (corn masa flour) with four tablespoons of water to make a thick paste. Stir in ½ the mixture and continue simmering, if chili still is not as thick as you like it add the remaining corn flour paste.
  3. *About the cooked beans - I used an eight bean blend, cooked to al dente. Feel free to use any mix of beans that you and your family prefer. Canned beans can also be used, just make sure to drain and rinse the beans in a colander.
