Red “Hold the Chicken” Chili Recipe

Last week I made Red “Hold the Chicken” Chili in my IG Story and the meal got such a great response. It’s an easy 30 minute vegetarian meal that uses just a few ingredients. You won’t miss the meat in this recipe at all. Trust me.

30 minute chili

To make this easy 30 minute chili you’ll need the following ingredients:

1 Can Chunky Rotel

2 Cans Northern White Beans

2 Cans Pinto Beans

1 Can Kidney Beans

Chicken Broth

1 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 teaspoons ground cumin

Half a white onion, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, minced

Juice from half a lime

Kosher salt to taste

Drain and rinse beans. Combine all ingredients except the salt. Use as much chicken broth as you’d like. I like my chili a bit brothy (too much broth will turn the chili into soup which isn’t a big deal if you want soup) so I normally use an entire box of broth. Bring all the ingredients to a boil and let simmer for 30 minutes. Salt your chili to your satisfaction and dinner is done! Consider topping your chili with fresh salsa, corn and avocado. You could also add fresh jalapeños to take the heat level up a little. 

I hope you enjoy this super quick and easy family dinner.
