COMPROMISE Chunky Chipotle Chicken Chili
Hoping that our elected officials can make a deal that we all can live with.
COMPROMISE Chunky Chipotle Chicken Chili
Everyone wins with this recipe:  it’s easy to prepare, it serves a crowd, and it’s healthier than most chili recipes.
Makes 16 (1 cup) servings
1-1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-size chunks
1 onion, finely chopped
1 can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (28 oz.) tomato sauce
1 can (19 oz. each) black beans and kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen whole kernel corn
4 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce, minced, plus 2 Tbsp. adobo sauce
1 tsp. ground cumin

Place all ingredients in slow cooker.  Cook on HIGH 2 hours, then reduce heat to LOW and cook 3 to 4 hours or until chicken is no longer pink.

Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream and fresh chopped cilantro.

For milder chili, use fewer chipotle chilies.
Use reduced fat shredded cheese and sour cream for a healthier dish.  Try no-salt-added diced tomatoes and tomato sauce if you're trying to reduce sodium.
