How to make it

  • Heat oil in a large kettle and add onion and garlic.
  • Cook for a few minutes until tender.
  • Stir in beans, broth, cumin, oregano, and cayenne.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 minutes.
  • Add chicken.
  • Cover and simmer for another 10 minutes.
  • Salt to taste and add more cayenne, if needed.
  • Garnish with sour cream, green chili sauce, chopped green onions, shredded Monterey jack cheese, crushed tortilla chips, or any combination of these. We like fat-free sour cream.
  • Note: The cans of beans can be substituted with 1 lb. dried Great Northern Beans. Soak beans in 8 cups of cold water overnight in a covered pan in the refrigerator. Drain and rinse.
  • Note: As chili simmers, you can mash the beans slightly to thicken the chili. I don't do this because I prefer it chunkier.

    I'm making this again this weekend.. for a "chili cook off" that my friend has done, 2 years in a row now. We have about 5 entries so far this year. What doesn't get eaten gets given to a local homeless shelter. Last year we gave them about 4 gallons of what we had left.

    WOW... I made the chili for work. I came back the next morning - and we'd went through over 2 gallons of it already!! Everyone was very impressed with it. I had to make more roux and stock to get the rest of it through that day. I think it's safe to say that I will be making it once a month or so - and now I have a way to use the turkey we have in the freezer from Thanksgiving, well, other than boring old turkey rice soup.

    " It was excellent "
    wendio ate it and said...
    This was AWESOME. The only variations we did were we used 2 cans of beans, then added 3T of chili powder to give it a little more ooomphhh. It's great to have a non-tomato based chili to eat again. Thanks!
