Chicken Chili Bean Chowder

Fall is here, and chili should be near

Recipe courtesy of Tidy Mom

“This tasty chowder is just right for chilly weeknight get-togethers . Pair it with a mixed-greens salad and rustic bread for a belly warming meal.”

Notes

This chowder was a little more like a soup, if you like your chowder or chili thick and chunky stir in 1/3 cup cornmeal when adding the beans, chiles and broth and milk. This gives the chili a thicker consistency and a texture similar to thin polenta. Recipe slightly adapted from Bush's Beans

Ingredients

For the Chicken Chili Bean Chowder

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon onion flakes
  • 1 Rib celery, finely chopped
  • 1 Medium carrot, finely chopped
  • 3 Cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 Cup chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 32 Ounces canned, Bush's Chili Beans, drained
  • 4 Ounces canned, diced green chiles
  • 1 Cup frozen corn, thawed and drained
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cumin
  • 4 Cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 2 Cups milk, whole or skim
  • 4 Tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Cup shredded, Cheddar cheese

Directions

For the Chicken Chili Bean Chowder

Heat oil in a 4-quart saucepan or dutch-oven over medium heat. Add onion flakes, celery, carrot and garlic. Cook 5 minutes; stir often.

If you don't already have cooked chicken; Heat a skillet to medium and drizzle about a tablespoon of olive oil into the pan and allow to heat through. Place cut up chicken breast (I used 4 small breasts) in pan and allow to cook for 7 or 8 minutes or until brown and golden. Flip and repeat until chicken breast is cooked.

Add chicken, beans, chiles, cumin, broth and milk to pot and bring to a simmer. Cook 25 to 30 minutes.

Serve topped with cilantro and cheese.
