Raspberry Chipotle Chicken Chili – GF*

I have never been a chili fan.  It was just not something we ate growing up so I had little experience with it.  It’s taken my years to like beans in things like cowboy caviar, in chili, even Chipotle ( I still refuse to add beans to my bowl/burrito).  However, a few years ago my sister Sarah introduced me to Raspberry Chipotle Chicken Chili.  A-FREAKING-MAZING! This dish is by far my absolute favorite that I have ever eaten, made, written about, talked about, passed on, and I even submitted it to our annual Chile Cook off at work. It took 2nd place two years in a row.  I can only assume it only took 2nd because it was the only non-traditional chili in the contest. I know, never assume, BUT in my defense this is so amazing there is no other explanation.

Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • Chicken – 1 lbs
  • Onion – 1 Large
  • Chicken Broth – 4 cups
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Black Beans
  • Chile Beans
  • Raspberry Chipotle Sauce I use Fischer & Wieser Or you could use Bronco Bobs  for more heat. I prefer HEAT.
  • Roasted Red Peppers – 1 Jar w/ juice
  • Onion – 1 Large

This really is a seriously easy dish to make.  When I was given the directions from my sister she recommended sauteing the carrots and the celery in a little butter before adding to the crock pot.  In the past I have never done this and did not run into any issues with my vegetables not being cooked enough. This time around I did not cook my ingredients for the full 8 hours on low, which resulted in my carrots not as done as I would have liked.  So if you have the time to leave the chili in the crock pot for the allotted time I would not stress about sauteing the carrots and celery.

Directions:

  1. Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the crock pot.
  2. Cover chicken with beans, corn, onion, celery, and carrots.
  3. Pour the Raspberry Sauce over the ingredients.
  4. Pour Chicken Broth over all ingredients.
  5. Stir.
  6. Cook on low for 8 ours or high for 4 hours.
  7. Pull the chicken breast out and shred.
  8. Add chicken back to crock pot.
  9. Stir.
  10. Plate.
  11. Enjoy.

Don’t forget to line your crock pot. I use these Extra Large Slow Cooker Liners Fits Up To 7-8 Quart Crock Pots 40 Ct

Also for more easy clean up I use these Blue Ceramic Mason Jar Spoon Rest by World Market
