Southwestern Chicken Chili #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Today for #SundaySupper we are having a little chili cook-off.  That means I have to come up with a chili recipe that I have never made before.  This is pretty tough in my house, you’ll see why in a second. I told my Husband I had to make chili again, since last #SundaySupper I made chili.  So chili twice in two weeks, my Husband was thrilled.  He said, you can never have too much chili!  He loves chili!!!  I told him I think I will make Southwestern Chicken Chili.  He said, oh, not regular beef chili?   I said no, he was not happy.  I said sorry, but this is what I want to make.  He said I won’t like it.  As some of you may already know from previous posts, he does not like chicken and tomatoes together.  He likes both ingredients, but not together.  In my house we won’t have chicken parmesan, chicken enchiladas, chicken with tomatoes and garlic and so on.  So this chili is also considered a chicken and tomato dish.

Anyway, I made my chili, served it and my Husband said, just give me a little bowl. He took a bite, and said, ready for this? This is really good, way better than I thought it would be! He went to the Crockpot, and filled his bowl up all of the way! Yah! He liked it! He actually ate chicken and tomatoes together, shocking!!! A couple of weeks ago it was yogurt and granola and now chicken and tomatoes, maybe I can change him? I know, I know, baby steps!

I honestly don’t know how he couldn’t like this chili, it was sooooooo good and so me!! Yup, this is totally a Jennifer Chili!! It’s made with all of my favorite things, black beans, chipotle peppers, chicken, corn and of course the basic chili ingredients like tomatoes. The chili is chunky, a little spicy, but more of a deep spice and so filling! Oh my gosh, I have to make this again!!!

What’s nice about this chili is I prepared it all together before I went to bed, and then placed it in the refrigerator. Then in the morning I let it come to room temperature and then put it in my Crockpot. I slow cooked it all day and when I came home from work, it was done. I googled preparing my food the night before and according the Crockpot people, you can! As long as you don’t put a cold pot directly into the Crockpot. They are afraid the cold hitting the warm of the Crockpot cooker would crack the bowl. It worked like a charm and now I will be doing this more often, especially since I can give my meal a little more love!

  1. Your chili looks spectacular! SO glad the hubby liked it, too. Mine has all sorts of crazy rules, but the list is mainly of foods he won’t touch!

  2. Jennifer, I was chuckling while reading your intro to your post . . . your husband sounds so much like my husband. If they put their stamp of approval on our recipes, than consider the recipes SUPER DELICIOUS! Love your creation!

  6. What is it with husbands and their made up rules about food. Yours has the no chicken with tomato. Mine has no tomato two days in a row (yes, that means if I serve chili one day then I can’t even put a tomato on a salad the next day). Crazy, just plain crazy. Anyway, I can see why this chili would change his mind about chicken and tomatoes. It sounds wonderful.
