3 Bean Chicken Chili

There are several things that I like about chili. One. It's very versatile. You can use just about any type of meat or no meat at all for that matter. Two. It's VERY easy to prepare. The prep time on chili is usually only about 10-15 minutes. Three. You can season it any way you like. Me...I like mine mild but add a little more chili powder and you can create one with a little more kick. Four. You can prepare it the night before if you wish then let it cook on warm/low all day in your slow cooker for a ready made meal after a long day away from home. Whatever your preference, chili is a healthy, filling meal that our family loves. I made this one on Superbowl Sunday and it was so good I served it all on it's own. 

3 Bean Chicken Chili
2 lb. Ground Chicken
1 tbsp. Canola Oil
1/2 c. Red Onion, chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, chopped
1-28oz. Can Crushed Tomatoes
3 tsp. Chili Powder
1-15oz. Can Black Beans
1-15oz. Can Red Kidney Beans
1-15oz. Can White Northern Beans
Kosher Salt, to taste

In a Dutch oven or large saucepan, heat the oil and add in the onions and garlic. Saute about 5 minutes, then add in the ground chicken. Stir until the chicken turns white and is cooked through then add in the crushed tomatoes, chili powder and beans. Let simmer for 1-1 1/2 hours over low heat, stirring every 20 minutes. Serve alone or over rice. Serves 8.

  1. That looks and sounds perfect for today.

    Last week we got as high as 78* and today...and today the high is 48*.

    Go figure.

    But this is my kind of winter day meal!

  2. Thanks Carrie! Where in TX are you? It's been fairly warm here as well but right now it's about 25 and snowing! :)
