Ingredients

  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast or tenders
  • 1 large onion peeled and chopped
  • 1 large red bell pepper seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 24 ounces jarred roasted red peppers in juices
  • 30 ounces red kidney beans drained
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 cups chicken broth

Instructions

  • Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the oil, followed by the chopped onions, peppers, celery, and garlic. Sauté for 3-5 minutes to soften.
  • Pour the sautéed veggies and the drained kidney beans in a large slow cooker. Place the chicken over the top, then sprinkle the chili powder, cumin, and salt in the slow cooker.
  • Pour the jarred roasted red peppers and their juices in a blender. Puree until very smooth. Pour the pureed red pepper and chicken broth in the slow cooker. Cover and turn on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 3-4 hours.
  • When the chicken is cooked through. Remove it with tongs, and shred the chicken with a fork. Stir the shredded chicken back into the crockpot. Serve warm!

Notes

NOTE: This chili is well seasoned, but is not spicy. If you want to kick up the heat, add 1-2 teaspoons cayenne pepper. Or add hot sauce after cooking.
