Black Bean Chili

Here is what’s on the menu tonight. These are the basic ingredients, but I like to play around with them. Ground turkey or beef instead of chicken, white beans for black, chopped chilies for salsa.

  • 1 lb chicken, cooked and cubed
  • 1 med onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin seed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 cans black beans, rinse and drain
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 2 tsp chili powder (if you have chipotle chili powder, that’s the best)
  • Sour cream/dripped yogurt and cheddar cheese for garnish

In a medium size sauce pan, heat oil over medium heat. Saute garlic and cumin seeds until sizzling. Add onions and saute until soft and golden. Add chicken, beans, broth, salsa and remaining seasonings except sour cream and cheese. Simmer for 20 mins. Remove from heat and garnish with sour cream and cheddar cheese.
