Progresso Broth

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 medium onions, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 2 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 cans (15 to 16 oz each) great northern beans, drained, rinsed
  • 2 cans (4.5 oz each) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles, undrained
  • 2 cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • Chopped fresh cilantro, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In 4 1/2- to 5-quart Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic; cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are softened.
  • 2
    Stir in cumin, salt, red pepper and chicken. Cook 6 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is lightly browned.
  • 3
    Stir in beans, chiles and broth. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover; cook 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center. Sprinkle with cilantro.

  • This tasty chili is just right for weeknight get-togethers. Pair it with a mixed-greens salad topped with sliced pears and crumbled cheese.
  • 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.
  • 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.
