- 2 T olive oil
- 1 Lb Bell & Evans Taco Seasoned Ground Chicken
- 1 Large onion, chopped
- 1 Green bell pepper, diced
- 1 Red bell pepper, diced
- 1 Small Jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
- 2 Large garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 T Chili powder
- 1 tsp Cumin
- 1 tsp Minced fresh oregano
- 1 tsp Ground coriander
- 1 28-oz Can Diced tomatoes
- 2 T Tomato paste
- 1 15-oz Can Red kidney beans with their juice
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- OPTIONAL: Diced avocado, chopped cilantro, diced red onion, sour cream, and/or shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar, for serving
- Select the Sauté setting on the multi-cooker and heat the oil. Add the ground chicken and cook, using a wooden spoon to break the meat into pieces as it browns, about 8 minutes. Add the onion, bell peppers, jalapeno, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and coriander and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is tender and translucent, about 5 more minutes. (If using a slow cooker, simply sauté the ingredients in a large skillet on the stovetop, then transfer to your slow cooker and proceed as below).
- Stir in the tomatoes and tomato paste and season with salt and pepper to taste.
- If using a multi-cooker, switch to the Slow Cooker setting. Cover and cook on low about 5.5 hours.
- After about 5.5 hours, stir in beans with their juice and cook 30 more minutes, or until beans are heated through and chili has thickened.
- Serve topped with avocado, cilantro, diced onions, sour cream, and/or cheese, if desired.
Overall a good chicken chili recipe. The ground product was very good compared to other ground chicken competitors (first one I liked that wasn’t turkey). Like the low fat in it. The chili recipe itself was fresh and tasty. Wish it was thicker might add some corn flour to it next time and maybe some darker spices/ brown sugar. But definitely would consider making a version of this again.
puree some beans and add to chili if you want some thickness.
