Hearty Chicken Chili

amyeatinglow's picture
This is so hearty and flavorful, you won't even remember that it uses ground chicken instead of beef! It's the perfect meal for a cold day.
  Ground chicken 1 Pound
  Tomato sauce 2 Can (20 oz) (Chili Style)
  Green pepper 1
  Onion 1
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm)

Brown the chicken in a skillet with the green pepper, onion, and garlic. Add the sauce and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Serve with cheese, sour cream, or whatever you like to put on chili.

NOTE: I used Hunt's Chili Tomato Sauce. It's tomato sauce that has already been seasoned to be used in chili. If you can't find this, you can make your own sauce using 2 cans diced tomatos (like Rotel brand), a can of tomato sauce, a bit of tomato paste, chili powder, and cumin.
