Red Chicken Chili with Cornbread Muffies

We had a chili day last year at my work, and my coworker's husband made the most AMAZING chicken chili that I have ever had... it hit the spot on this rainy Sunday.

Ingredients (the American Ale is missing)

Recipe called for 1/4 cup of mushrooms, but, heck, I added the entire bag!

Rinse and drain the red beans

Add a jar of chipotle salsa

Add a small can of tomato sauce

Add shredded chicken - what I did was I boiled the chicken in hot water for 40 minutes so that it was tender enough to shred with a fork before adding it to the chili pot

Cheese! Also add sour cream (not pictured)

The good stuff... only 6 oz!



Chili powder





Take 2 tablespoons of flour and mix with just enough hot water to make a paste (more pasty then it is pictured here), then add to chili pot

And, look what Miss Autumn was up to while I was getting everything in the pot? Heheh!

Simmer for 1 hour on the stove top.

Meanwhile, make some corn bread muffies (added 1/2 a can of sweet corn for added delish-ness)

Still waiting... as the kids trample me! heheh!

Ok, shoot... I forgot to take a picture of the FINAL and end result of the chili- but, ohhh... it was SO good!! Maybe that is why I forgot to snap a picture? Usually chicken chili is in a white sauce but this chili is in a red sauce. SO good! So, instead of a picture of the chili, here is a cute photo of my son!

Here is the recipe:

Red Chicken Chili

1 bag sliced white mushrooms
1 can (15.5 oz) light red kidney beans, rinse and drain
1 16 oz jar chipotle salsa
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
3 chicken breasts, boiled and shredded
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup sour cream
6 oz American ale beer
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons minced garlic (not dried)
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons flour

Boil chicken breasts in water for 40 minutes, shred with fork.

Combine all ingredients except flour. Mix flour with just enough hot water to make a paste. Add to ingredients. Bring to a simmer and continue for 1 hour. Cool for 15 minutes. Top with extra cheese and sour cream.
