This was so good! I got the recipe from epicurious and it will be added to our "rotation" of cold weather foods! YUMM!
1/4 cup olive oil 1 1/3 cups chopped onion 1 large green bell pepper, chopped 6 garlic cloves, chopped 2 1/4 pounds skinless boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1/2-inch cubes 3 1/2 tablespoons chili powder 2 tablespoons tomato paste 1 tablespoon ground cumin 1 tablespoon dried oregano 2 15- to 16-ounce cans white beans, drained, juices reserved 2 15-ounce cans diced tomatoes in juice 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic; sauté until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add chicken; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sauté until chicken is no longer pink outside, about 5 minutes. Mix in chili powder, tomato paste, cumin, and oregano. Add beans, 1 cup reserved bean juices, and canned tomatoes. Simmer until chicken is cooked through and chili is thickened, about 25 minutes. If chili is too thick, add more bean juices by tablespoonfuls to thin. Season chili to taste with salt and pepper. Mix in cilantro and serve.
We added Cheese and sour cream to ours and also dipped in tortilla chips! YUM!
I'm southern, I live in the north (you'll never convince me MD is not the north) and I'm slightly sarcastic, sorry it just happens, like poop happens, my sarcasm happens too~
I LOVE my husband, my daughter, and my dogs, and I’m a Christian, though not always the best example. I try to do it all, but know i can't alone. I brighten my journey with a few bows, sparkles, monograms, and heels. This is how I brought my southern roots to the north!
