Ingredients

  • 3

    tablespoons chili powder

  • 1

    tablespoon ground cumin

  • 2

    teaspoons ground coriander

  • 1/4

    teaspoon red pepper flakes (omit for milder chili)

  • 1

    teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1/4

    teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 2

    teaspoons salt, divided

  • 2

    tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2

    cups chopped yellow onions, from 2 medium onions

  • 1

    red bell pepper, diced

  • 6

    medium garlic cloves, minced

  • 2

    pounds ground chicken (not extra-lean breast meat)

  • 2

    (26 oz.) cartons Pomi chopped tomatoes or two 28 oz. cans chopped or diced tomatoes

  • 2

    cups low sodium chicken broth

  • 1

    teaspoon sugar

  • 1

    (15 oz.) can small Cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

Directions

Make the spice mixture by combining the chili powder, cumin, coriander, red pepper flakes, oregano, cayenne pepper and 1 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Mix well and set aside. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-bottomed nonreactive pot over medium heat. Add the onions and red bell pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring to prevent garlic from burning, about two minutes more. Increase the heat to medium-high and add the ground chicken and spice mixture. As the chicken cooks, use a wooden spoon to break the meat into very small clumps; cook until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, chicken broth, remaining teaspoon salt and sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer, partially covered (set lid ajar so steam has a few inches to escape), for about one hour, stirring occasionally. Stir in the white beans and simmer, uncovered for about 50 minutes more, or until the meat is tender and the flavors are well combined. For a soupier chili, you can add additional water. For a thicker chili, simmer uncovered until desired consistency is reached. Taste and add salt if necessary. Note: Pomi boxed tomatoes are available at some regular grocers, Whole Foods and gourmet food shops. Note: A nonreactive pot is made of a material that will not react negatively with acidic ingredients. Stainless steel, enamel, glass and nonstick (as long as there are no scratches in the nonstick coating) are all safe to use. Do not use cast iron or aluminum.
