Chile Ancho and Chicken Chili

Chile Ancho and Chicken Chili
  • Prep 10 min
  • Total 45 min
  • Ingredients 11
  • Servings 6
In my opinion, there's nothing more comforting than a bowl of chili. In one portion you have a complete meal with its mix of beans, meats and vegetables. I like to make chili regularly and I always have cans of beans and tomatoes in my cupboard. I only need to add one different ingredient to change the flavor because chili is incredibly versatile, not to mention a very economic dish. From start to finish, this chili is ready in only 45 minutes and the chile ancho gives it a slight kick. Best of all, it costs approximately $2 per portion to prepare. I hope you like it!

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch thick cubes
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 chile ancho (dried Poblano pepper)
  • 1 (19-oz) can Progresso™ Red Kidney Beans
  • 2 (15-oz) cans Progresso™ Black Beans
  • 1 (14.5-oz) can Muir Glen™ diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups spinach (washed, rinsed and drained)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Purple onion, for garnish (optional)

Directions

  • 1
    Heat the canola oil in a large pot. Carefully drop the diced chicken into the hot oil and cook until cubes are golden-brown on all sides, for approximately 8-10 minutes. Add the garlic and chile ancho and stir for 30 seconds.
  • 2
    Pour both cans of beans and 1 can of diced tomatoes into the pot with the chicken. Add the cup of water, salt and pepper to taste, and let boil over medium heat for 15 minutes.

    Serve while hot with some of the chopped, purple onion for garnish.

Expert Tips

  • If you don't have black beans on hand, use pinto beans instead.
  • I recommend opening all the cans so they're ready to add to the chicken as soon as it's cooked and golden-brown.
