Chicken chili is easy and sure to please
Mary Bilyeu | Contributor
Because convenience items are used — including a can of Progresso Recipe Starters which was sent to me for marketing purposes — this dish can be made very quickly after a long day. But the roasting of both the garlic in the sauce, as well as the tomatoes, provides extra depth of flavor.
Pair this with some cornbread and/or a salad, and you'll have a quick, easy meal that everyone at my house enjoyed.
3 tablespoons oil
2 large scallions, chopped
2 tablespoons garlic paste
1 small red onion, chopped fine
1 cup fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1 15-ounce can red kidney beans, rinsed
1 18-ounce can Progresso Recipe Starters Creamy Roasted Garlic
1/2 cup fresh salsa
1 tablespoon Adobo seasoning
1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
3/4 cup chopped cooked chicken
cheese and sour cream, for serving
In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add scallions, garlic paste, and red onion; saute until vegetables are translucent. Add remaining ingredients; bring to a boil, then lower heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes.
Serve hot, topped with cheese and sour cream, if desired.
Makes 4 servings.
