This Smokey Chicken Chili is a tasty dish with a slight smokey taste, perfect for Smoke Eaters!
1-In a large sauce pot, combine the onions, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, s&p, oregano, chili powder, cumin & smoked paprika in a tbsp of coconut oil & saute over med low heat, stirring constantly for 5 to 10 minutes.
2- Next, mix in the chicken. I like to use a good quality store bought rotesseri chicken, however, sometimes I roast my own seasoned chicken, beforehand.
3-Immediately after stirring the pepper mixture and the chicken together, add in the beans & the corn and mix in as well.
4-After the chicken and peppers have been evenly mixed together with the beans & the corn, add in the tomato sauce & chicken stock.
5-Bring the pot to a low simmer and cook for about 45 minutes.
6-The last step is to add in the cream cheese until it melts and is stirred into the chili.
7-Serve over rice, with a dollop of sour cream & some shredded cheddar cheese, along with some tortilla strips (or crushed chips)
Pair with Smoke Eater "First Due Red" Pinotage
This is a hearty delicious dish! Enjoy!
