Chicken Chili

Ingredients:

  • olive oil (1-2 Tablespoons)
  • 1 medium onion chopped

  • 2 cans diced tomatos (14 oz)
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • chicken broth
  • 1 can kidney beans (rinsed)
  • 1 can black beans (rinsed)

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, add oil, onion & garlic. Over medium heat saute until onion starts to turn translucent. Add Chicken & cook until most of the pink is gone from the chicken.
  2. Add chili powder & cumin. Stir to coat. Add tomatos, tomato paste & just enough chicken broth to barely cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat & let simmer for 30 minutes
  3. Add black & kidney beans. Continue to simmer for 15 minutes.
