Description

Pinto beans add a creamy flavor to this sweet and spicy chicken chili.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons Olive Oil Plus Extra For Drizzling On The Chicken
  • 1  White Onion, Chopped
  • 1  Red Bell Pepper, Stem And Seeds Removed Then Chopped
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Peeled And Chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons Chili Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Cumin
  • 1-½ teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • Fresh Black Pepper To Taste
  • 1 can 28 Oz Can Diced Tomatoes In Juice
  • 2-½ cups Low-salt Chicken Broth
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Can) Pinto Beans, Rinsed And Drained
  • 1 ounce, weight Semisweet Chocolate, Chopped
  • ⅛ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
  • ¼ teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes, Plus More To Taste
  • 1 pound Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast

Preparation

Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven or large pot over medium high heat until shimmering. Add onion and bell pepper and saute until onion is soft and translucent, about 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook a few minutes more until fragrant then add in chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, and a bit of fresh black pepper and stir for 1 minute more. Next add in the tomatoes, chicken broth, pinto beans, chocolate, cinnamon, tomato paste, and red pepper flakes and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30-35 minutes, stirring occasionally.

To cook chicken: Preheat oven to 400 F. Drizzle or rub a tiny bit of olive oil over chicken and generously season with salt and pepper. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and bake 18-25 minutes. Baking times differ depending on the size of your chicken breast but remember to cook until juices run clear. Alternatively you could use about 3 cups of shredded rotisserie chicken. Cool the baked chicken for 5-10 minutes then pull and shred chicken with two forks.

After 30-35 minutes of simmering the chili, add the shredded chicken into the chili. Simmer uncovered for about 20 more minutes or until chili reaches desired consistency.

Serve with fresh queso, cornbread or chips if desired. I love topping mine with a little bit of Greek yogurt.
