How to make it

  • Cut chicken into small bite sized cubes, or small strips (think along the lines of chinese food for the size of the pieces)
  • Chop your bell peppers and onions to your liking
  • Chop fine your jalapeno's (cook the recipe without as you can always add them for heat if not spicy enough for you)
  • Cube, or shred your cheese
  • Picante sauce
  • Add all your ingredients to a large crock pot in this order: chicken, onions, bell peppers, jalapenos, garlic, beans with the juice they're in, black pepper, Cumin, pepper jack cheese, and finally picante sauce
  • Cover and let cook on high for 4 hours and finish the last 2 hours on low stirring every hour "GENTLY" so as to not break up the beans, and chicken too much as they cook. Beans should get creamy and very soft.
  • Alternate cooking method: put it together in the morning before you go to work, cook on low heat for the 9-10 hours you will be gone. A hot dinner will await you.
  • Garnish however you want.....maybe a little sour cream, or with a few sliced jalapenos set in the center of your bowl. Eat this like "normal" chili, or use it like a hot dip by scooping it up with Tortilla chips as this is how my family loves it.
  • If you feel the need to salt it, keep in mind there is a lot of salt in the cheese.
  • Even better the second day.
  • Great for parties, card games, or watching the game on TV as people can serve themselves....and it goes great with beer!
  • Makes a large batch but it freezes well in an airtight container.

    I can't wait to try this one. The option to set it in the morning and come home to a hot meal is just too great to miss!
