Black Bean and Ground Chicken Chili

    • 90 minutes
    • Serves 6
    • Medium


    Sometimes comfort food is the way to go, especially a one-pot chili! I love using ground, dark meat chicken but any ground meat will work for this chili.

    Prep Your Vegetables

    Chop the red onion, bell peppers into a medium-size dice. Finely mince the garlic cloves.


    Get a Large Soup Pot

    Add olive oil to a large soup pot and turn to medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the chopped onion and sauté for a couple of minutes then add the garlic, stir and cook for another minute.

    Next, add all of the spices to the pot: cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and smoked paprika, stir to combine.

    Add the ground chicken and bring up the heat to medium-high. Stir and break up the meat and coat it evenly with the spice and onion mixture. Cook until the meat is browned, about 5-7 minutes. The meat does not have to be fully cooked through at this point.

    Add chopped bell pepper, drained and rinsed black beans and the crushed tomatoes. Add salt and pepper then stir to combine.


    Add Stock and Simmer for 45-60 minutes

    Add 1 cup of chicken stock then bring the heat up to high and bring the mixture up to a simmer. Once at a simmer, cover the pot and lower the heat to low. Cook for at least 45 minutes or up to an hour.

    Give it a stir and taste. Adjust salt and/or pepper if needed.


    Serve and Garnish

    Serve and top with a bit of greek yogurt, radish and cilantro. Avocado and grated cheese are also great!

    This dish makes for great leftovers as it tends to get more flavorful overnight!

    I am digging the addition of the smoked paprika…I adore that spice!! Thanks for sharing a great chili recipe!! I’ll have to try it!

    Love it! It’s so cold here and I want a bowl right now. I really like your topping options – they brightens up and balances out the chilli.

    Comforting chilli is all I need right now! It’s shtorming in Northern California and oh so hard to leave the house in rain! Better to have a bowl of chilly!

    Mmm, it does feel like chili season and you can’t have too many types! So easy to pull out of the freezer for quick suppers too. I like the idea of a chicken chili that isn’t white — and we love smoked paprika!
