It’s finally Fall here in Atlanta. At least I hope so. But, these past few days sure have felt like Fall and they’ve made me want chili really bad. I was telling my boyfriend last night about the many status updates on Facebook I saw of people making chili for dinner. We got into a long conversation about how when we first started dating 3 years ago we made chili all the time. Well, it’s that time again, folks. CHILI TIME! I’ve been to lots of chili cook offs, I’ve even hosted a few at my house, and you know who wins everytime for the best chili? BRENT! So, without his permission, I am giving you his recipe. Sorry, Brent 😦
(He’ll get over it, because he loves me!)
Brent’s Chicken Chili
- 2 large chicken breasts, cubed
- 1 can black beans, unflavored
- 1/2 cup jalapeno, chopped
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 packet chili seasoning
Directions: In one deep pan, blend the black beans, jalapeno, tomatoes and chili seasoning. Heat on medium/high. Cook the cubed chicken in a separate pan. Stir the black bean mixture every now and then so it doesn’t stick to the pan. After chicken is cooked completely through, mix in with bean mixture. Stir and continue on medium/low heat. Serve hot with crackers, Fritos, sour cream… whatever fixins you want to use.
Have fun and Happy Kitchening!
