Loved it. I made a few modifications. I smoked 2 whole chickens to give the chili a nice smoky richness. I increased the cumin to a full teaspoon. I utilized red, orange, and yellow peppers for color and added a can of cannellini beans in addition to one can of great northern. Even better the second day after the flavors have had a chance to meld. Topped it with tortilla chips and shredded cheddar. I will make this recipe for the rest of my life.
I renamed it Hot Chicken Chili...I'm the 2nd person on here that won a church chili cookoff with this recipe! That's why I selected it in the first place. I doubled the recipe and ended up only using 5 jalepenos (doubling called for 8) and there was still plenty of kick!
This was very good. Easy to prepare
i made it again today and even with the 4 jalapeno's it was not overly spicy. I splashed a little Frank's Red Hot sauce "chili lime" flavor and grated asiago cheese on top and crunched up some tortilla chips and it was perfect.
