Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in Dutch oven over high heat.
  2. Add onions and carrots, stirring to cook until carrots are fork tender.
  3. Add the garlic, cumin and taco seasoning stirring to coat veggies.
  4. Add chicken and cook over med-high heat until pieces are no longer pink on the outside.
  5. Stir in green pepper and cook for a few minutes.
  6. Pour in a little of the chicken stock if you need to keep the chicken from sticking.
  7. Add the beans and chicken stock.
  8. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to let it simmer for 20-25 minutes.
  9. Note: We like a soupier chili in our house because everyone adds something to their own bowl, like crushed up crackers, sour cream or grated cheese. If you like a thicker chili, you can sprinkle a few tablespoons of flour over the onions and carrots at the same time that you add the seasonings.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Many people will tell you to remove the skin on your chicken to cut down on fat. This is true, but if you like the taste, leave it on! You're only gaining a little fat for a lot of flavor. Plus, a little over half of the fat in chicken skin is monounsatured fat (that's a heart-healthy kind) and the notion that saturated fat is unhealthy is being questioned too. So in our opinion: dig in, skin and all!

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

  • Some bouillon/stock products contain gluten, some don't. If you are following a gluten-free diet, always read product labels carefully.

Price Tips

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

Cooking Tips

  • You can easily make your own taco seasoning at home. Typical ingredients include paprika, chili powder, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, and of course salt and pepper.

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.

  • If you normally rinse your chicken?stop! You could be spreading bacteria around your kitchen and it isn't really necessary.

  • Carrots can be stored in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks. The starch in the carrots will turn to sugar over time, but this is not a problem, they'll just taste sweeter. The academy lesson about carrots contains more useful information.

Green Tips

  • Choose pasture-raised chicken if it is available. If it is not at your supermarket, visit a farmers' market and ask around.

  • Bell peppers are unfortunately on the "dirty dozen" list compiled by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). You might want to buy them organic when you can.
