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.

Notes:
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.
