Pozole Chili

Pozole Chili 250 Author: Canadian Living Credits: Pozole Chili 250

This chili takes the best flavours of a traditional Mexican soup of the same name and turns them into a hearty chili that sticks to your ribs and works great for leftovers. If you like it spicy, add extra jalapeños or use a spicier green salsa. Serve topped with sour cream, avocado and fresh cilantro. Stretch this chili even further by serving it over rice.

Ingredients

  • 4 serrano peppers halved and seeded
  • 4 poblano chili peppers halved and seeded
  • 4 Cubanelle peppers halved and seeded
  • 1 jalapeño pepper halved and seeded
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 lbs lean ground chicken
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 cups sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cup mild green salsa
  • 2 cans white kidney beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups frozen corn kernels
  • 1 cup packed fresh cilantro coarsely chopped

Method

On foil-lined baking sheet, rub serrano and jalapeño peppers with 2 tsp of the oil. Broil, skin side up, until blistered and beginning to blacken, about 5 minutes. Let cool enough to handle. Remove charred skin; coarsely chop peppers.

Meanwhile, in large pot or Dutch oven, heat remaining oil over high heat; cook chicken, breaking up with spoon, until browned and no liquid remains, about 15 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium-high; sauté onion until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in cumin, coriander and salt.

Stir in broth, salsa and chopped peppers, scraping up any browned bits. Add beans and corn; bring to boil.

Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 30 minutes. Stir in cilantro.
