    Everyone was so critical the last time I made it and I have to admit it was pretty abysmal.

    Here is my list of ingredients.

    1 skinless boneless chicken breast. (lean meat) (run through a Cuisinart)
    [​IMG]

    1 can of Del Monte Petite Diced Tomatoes No Salt Added. Sodium 5mg
    [​IMG]

    1 8oz can of Redpack tomato sauce. No salt added. Sodium 15 mg
    [​IMG]

    1/2 can of low sodium chicken broth. Sodium 570mg :facepalm:
    [​IMG]

    2 cans of Rienzi Kidney Beans. Sodium 24mg
    [​IMG]

    1/2 chopped red onion.
    [​IMG]

    1/2 green bell pepper finely chopped.
    [​IMG]

    4 cloves of garlic finely chopped.
    [​IMG]

    1/2 habanero pepper. Finely chopped.
    [​IMG]



    Cumin

    Chili powder

    Salt and pepper


    I think that's it.

    Directions:

    Saute the chicken onion and pepper and add the garlic in later in a little olive oil.

    Combine the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken broth, cumin, chili powder, habanero peppers and chicken mixture in a pot.

    Simmer for an hour.

    It should look like this.

    Add rinsed Kidney beans.

    Cook for 15 more minutes or until hot.

    It will look like this.

    It has just the right amount of spicy. It doesn't overwhelm the palate. It's subtle. It lets you know it's spicy afterwards.

    You should use fresh, they really are easy to do, just soak overnight and simmer in stock, you'll never go back to canned

    Beer in chili is good.
    Chicken is not.

    I made chili over the weekend and per your suggestion added coffee, not sure if it added anything but the chili came out good and it certainly didn't detract from it. I'll keep playing with it :hat:

    I've thought about cooking my own beans. Baby steps. I should make my own stock too.

    If you want a real treat, grow your own beans. Let them climb up a trellis and they take up very little space. Don't let the term "trellis" scare you. A tall pole with string attached at the top and 2 feet away from the bottom of the pole works fine. You can grow a large amount of bean in a space 3 feet by 3 feet. With crop rotation you can grown different beans in the same spot. Snow peas in January to harvest in March, Pintos or red beans in March to harvest in July, Repeat and harvest in September, green peas and harvest in December. Small space with high yield and variety. Nothing better than fresh beans.
