3 teaspoons smoked paprika

3 teaspoons ground cumin

3 teaspoons ground ancho chile pepper

3 teaspoons chili powder

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 tablespoons canola oil + extra

1 pound ground chicken

1 pound chicken tenders – diced (1/2-inch pieces)

kosher salt / fresh finely ground black pepper

1 large onion – diced (1 1/2 cups)

1 large jalapeño – stemmed, seeded, minced (1/4 cup)

6 garlic cloves – minced

3 tablespoons tomato paste

2 (14.5 ounce) cans diced petite tomatoes

1 cup chicken stock

1 (15.5 ounce) can small white beans – drained, rinsed


for the garnishes:

shredded cheddar cheese

fresh cilantro leaves

sliced jalapeños

sliced green onions

sour cream

hot sauce


Mix all the spices in a small bowl.

Heat oil in a 6-quart pot over high heat. Add the ground and diced chicken. Season with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 10 turns on the pepper mill. Sauté until lightly browned, about 6 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium. Add onions, minced jalapeño, garlic and the spices. Sauté until the onions are tender, about 5 minutes. {Note: if you feel the pot is dry, add 1 – 2 tablespoons canola oil}. Add tomato paste and sauté until caramelized, about 30 seconds. Stir in tomatoes, stock and beans. Season with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 8 turns on the pepper mill. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook until all the flavors combine, 35 – 40 minutes. Stirring periodically.

Divide among bowls. Top with desired garnishes. {Note: It’s fun to make a chili fixin‘ bar. Arrange the garnishes in small to medium sized bowls and have your guests help themselves, dressing their chicken chili as they desire}.
