Healthy Chicken Chili

   I love that it is finally starting to feel like fall. One of my favorite things to make in the fall and winter is chicken chili. It is so easy and delicious! It is so healthy too. My husband gets so excited for this, and he eats up the whole pot pretty fast. It is a hearty meal and a delicious snack. It will last in your fridge for about a week. It also freezes well. I also recommend varying this recipe to your liking. Try it tonight, and it will quickly become one of your seasonal favorites.

Chicken Chili:

3 roasted boneless skinless chicken breast halves shredded (You can also use a rotisserie chicken from  the grocery store.)
1 large yellow onion
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 Serrano pepper
3 garlic cloves (chopped)
olive oil
salt pepper
chili powder
cayenne pepper
1 can diced tomatoes
2 cans chicken broth
1 can black beans
1 can white beans
1 light beer of your choice
1 white chicken chili packet ( McCormick's or any other brand found on spice aisle)

Saute onion in about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the green and red bell peppers and cook on medium for about 3 minutes. Then, add the chopped garlic and Serrano pepper. Remove the seeds from the pepper before adding. Next, put in both cans of beans and diced tomatoes. Then, add the chicken broth and the beer. Bring to a simmer. Next, add the chicken and a few dashes of chili powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper. Lastly, add the chicken chili packet. Lower the heat, and cook the chili uncovered for about 30 minutes. The longer it cooks and sits the better:) Enjoy!!
