chicken, black bean, and corn chili!

i promised yesterday on my facebook that i'd post my new recipe on my blog..so finally, without holding out on you any longer..here it is. :)

i found a similar recipe online, and just sort of played with it. added things, took away things, ya know. so here goes!

anna nicole's chicken, black bean and corn chili: {perfect for chilly fall weather!}

you will need
- 1 whole rotisserie chicken
- 2 cans of yellow corn, drained
- 2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 cans of tomato sauce
- 1 can of Rotel tomatoes {i used the "hot" kind..you can also try "mild"..it you are not into spicy stuff at all, you can always try just crushed tomatoes.}
- 1 onion
- 1 green pepper
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 packet of chili seasoning {i used mccormick's 30% less sodium chili seasoning}
- 1-2 celery stalks {i left it out of mine only because it got too cold in my fridge and ruined my celery..sad day.}
- black pepper {as much or as little as you like}
- salt {to taste}


1. i like to call step one the fun part.."pickin' the chicken." i was lucky enough to have a good friend over while i did this step, so it made it not so bad. i just sat there, laughing and chatting away, while greasing myself all up by picking every piece of meat apart and throwing it in a bowl.

2. slice the onion and green pepper into edible-sized pieces.

3. mince the garlic. i'd never done this before; i'm just trying my hand at a broader range of homemade dishes..so i had to youtube how to peel/cut/mince garlic. here's what i used..a little silly, but useful the same.

4. combine the tomato sauce, the veggies, the chicken, everything..all in a crockpot. mix well! when i emptied my tomato sauce cans, some stayed in the cans; i filled each can up maybe 1/3 of the way full, swished it around, and poured that in as well. when you dump in the rotel, don't worry about draining it; the juice has a heat to it that is amazing in the mix!

5. allow the goods to simmer on low heat for about 4 hours or so and then..enjoy!

*you can always top it with other yummies! cheese and sour cream are both great toppings for this chili*

enjoy! leave me a comment and let me know what you think :)
