Smoked Chicken and Black Bean Chili

Smoked Chicken and Black Bean Chili

I have been craving chili and soups and all of the comfort foods that come with fall! After we discovered the deliciousness of Smoked Chicken, I could not wait to make chili with it. It’s oh SO GOOD, y’all!

Of course if you are not into smoking chickens, you could always pick up a rotisserie chicken from the deli and make it. Our local barbecue places will usually sell whole smoked chickens and one place will even let you bring your own chicken, ribs or brisket for them to smoke.

Tips for Chicken Chili:

  • Pick up a smoked chicken from your local barbecue or a rotisserie chicken from the deli.
  • Use canned black beans – you can substitute pinto beans or white beans if you prefer. Black beans are just my favorite.
  • You can substitute milk for the cream and use your favorite cheese if you can’t find the cotija cheese.

What to serve with Chili:

We love to serve chili with Fritos, tortilla chips or Skillet Cornbread.

Sour cream, cotija cheese and Roasted Garlic Guacamole are our favorite toppings.
