Chili Dog Chili

The last chili recipe is one I found that’s meant for chili cheese dogs, though we don’t eat it with hot dogs (or the cheese).  We double the recipe so it can last a few extra meals, and it’s not only easy to make, but it’s also really good.  I first made it for the last night of the World Series, and have since altered it, to what I think is the perfect meal.  I don’t have any pictures of this one, but I am including a picture of a fun serving idea – over butternut squash “fries” – i.e. crinkle cut butternut squash. It’s also great on a sloppy joe type sandwich for kids (and kids at heart).

BONUS – If you want to check out the cookbook where I found the recipe, the Kindle version of the cookbook is on sale now for less than $5!  It has other great recipes like Grown up Beans on Toast and the Go-To Frittata.IMG_8132

serves 6-8

adapted from Dude Diet Cookbook

INGREDIENTS

2 lbs ground chicken breast

3 tsp olive oil

2 small onions, chopped small

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 tbsp chili powder

4 tsp paprika

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

2 14.5 oz cans of diced tomatoes (I use Muir Glen Fire Roasted with Garlic)

1 15 oz can tomato sauce (I use Muir Glen Organic)

2 small cans mild diced green chiles

2 tsp coconut aminos (or Worcestershire sauce)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat oil in a large stockpot.  Add onions and garlic and saute until softened and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add spices and stir in until toasted, about 30 seconds – 1 minute.
  3. Add chicken and cook while breaking up into small pieces with a wooden spoon.
  4. Once the chicken is all just cooked, add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, green chiles and coconut aminos.  Bring to a boil and simmer for about 15 minutes, or longer, until desired thickness is reached.
