Serve-With
This tasty chili is just right for weeknight get-togethers. Pair it with a mixed-greens salad topped with sliced pears and crumbled cheese.
Variation
Like your chili thick and chunky? Stir in 1/3 cup cornmeal when adding the beans, chiles and broth. This gives the chili a thicker consistency and a texture similar to thin polenta.
Did You Know?
Cumin has a very aromatic and nutty flavor. It comes from the dried fruit of a plant in the parsley family and is used in many Mexican dishes, as well as being a key spice in curries and chili powders.
