How to make Really Chili

This is actually a pretty simple process. I used a crock pot, but I am sure similar results are possible with a stove.


  • First, soak the beans in a pot full of water (not the water in the ingredients list though) over night or for eight or more hours. There is no real need to separate them.
  • Next, cook the chicken and diced onions together in a pan to make sure that they have the right texture and are properly cooked. 
  • Drain the beans and place them, along with all of the other ingredients into your crock pot. 
  • Stir everything together and set the crock pot on low for at least six hours. I usually set mine to nine hours and let it stay on warm until I am ready to put it away.
  • Serve and garnish with cheese and/or Tabasco chipotle sauce. The chipotle sauce gives the chili a smoky taste and only adds a light amount of extra spiciness.

This recipe yields about 10 servings of 16 oz.
