The Light Spin on a Game-Day Staple
If you've got a slow cooker, you've probably made chili in it, realizing, as we have, that it seems there's no limit to how long the meat and spices can spend simmering away, melding together in perfect harmony. It's a great dish to make for a game-watching crowd, too, since guests can help themselves and top off their chili bowls with their choice of fixings. Instead of beef, though, this recipe has you use boneless, skinless chicken breasts, or thighs, cut into half-inch cubes. The poultry is surprisingly perfect with corn, green chilies, salsa, beans and cilantro; it's a milder meat than beef and lets the bright taste of all those other ingredients shine.
