Change things up this winter by making chili with chicken instead of beef. For a milder version, you can substitute a green bell pepper for the jalapenos. Garnish with cheese and cilantro if desired.

I sautéed the onions until translucent then added chili and cumin until fragrant. I added the flour until cooked then the cup of chicken broth (in which I had cooked the chicken breasts then shredded) and made a roux. I added the enchilada sauce and stirred until thickened then added the beans and shredded chicken and oregano. I left out the jalapeños - I don't think they would have enough time to cook in this recipe. Maybe a can of chiles? I'll see if this needs more spice. It is still cooking. Read More

This was very good when prepared exactly as written. But next time I might throw in a can of diced tomatoes to give it extra color and flavor. Read More
