Thanks to a few secret ingredients, this chicken chili has people coming back for seconds.
If you searched through the archives of this blog, you’d find an entire collection of chili recipes. As far as I’m concerned, chili is a dieter’s dream meal.
I can pack my slow cooker with fiber-packed beans, low-fat ground meat, wholesome vegetables, and in a few hours, I’ll have a satisfying bowl of goodness.
But this chicken chili recipe differs from those I’ve conjured up in the past – it harbors secret ingredients.
I can’t take credit for the idea to add a sprinkle of cinnamon and dark cocoa powder, as I learned that neat trick from my friend’s husband.
I was visiting Carol as her hubby was making a pot of his “famous chili.” When I couldn’t pinpoint the ingredient that gave his chili that something different, he confessed.
Since then, I’ve seen cinnamon and cocoa added to many other Mexican inspired dishes. That’s what I love about cooking. There’s always something new to learn.
Happy, healthy cooking!
