Fall is hands down my most favorite season. Warm scarves. Leaves crunching under my boots. And the food. Fall food is a special, unique category all unto itself. And homemade chili is one of those tasty fall meals...especially if you have some venison. Nothing like a hunk of deer meat in your chili ;-) #daughterofahunter
Last week I was looking for a new chili recipe to kick off fall with. Knowing Jim's deep love for all things BBQ, I knew I couldn't pass this one up from Skinnytatse.
The recipe calls for cooking over the stove top, but I was itching to use the crock pot. Still tasty...added cayenne pepper for an extra kick too
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup of onion diced
2 garlic cloves minced
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
12 oz. boneless chicken breasts
1 1/2 cups canned cannellini beans
1 1/2 cups canned kidney beans
3 cups low sodium chicken stock
1 28-oz. can diced tomatoes
1 container of Stubb's original BBQ sauce
cheddar cheese and chopped cilantro for topping
1// Pour olive oil in bottom of crock pot
2// Add all ingredients minus cheddar cheese and cilantro
3// Cook on High for 6-7 hours
4// Ladle chili into bowls and top with cheddar cheese and cilantro.
Needless to say it's pretty tasty ;)
