Chicken Chili

Last weekend's dinner was another Ina favorite; her Chicken Chili. Once we found and tried this recipe a few years back, it has become a staple in our house once the weather starts to get a little cooler. This chili is lighter than its meat and beans counterpart, so have an extra helping!

Onions are sauteed, then added to them is garlic, red and yellow peppers, chili powder, cayenne, cumin, red pepper flakes, salt, crushed plum tomatoes, and basil. This simmers for about 30 minutes then baked, shredded chicken is added and simmered for 20 minutes. It comes together easily and makes enough for company...

...or for left overs the next night! We enjoyed ours topped with sour cream and shredded cheddar. If you haven't made this recipe yet, you really should. A+ Ina!

Isn't Ina wonderful? She has never led me astray yet.
I remember this episode too, with her friend the cookbook writer coming to visit.
Great chilli!

Looks delicious - and I'm glad it is a bit lighter than the meat chillis. Somethnig for me to try once the weather here cools down.

I think we will have to give this a try. Sorry it's been so long since I popped over. Things have been crazy lately. I'm trying desperately to catch up!
