We love us some good chili and this recipe is a tried-n-true favorite! It’s especially great for making use of leftover roasted chicken, or cooked chicken meat from making your own homemade stock. (You can also use leftover roasted turkey as well!)
By the way, if you’re not making homemade stock (i.e. bone broth), can I seriously beg you to give it a try? Please, pretty please! Not only is it far, far superior in taste to any boxed or canned stock on the market, it’s so much more nutritious too!
In fact, homemade bone broth is considered a true super food. The cooking process breaks down bones and connective tissues – including proteins, minerals and fat – that help to heal the body in various ways. One of the greatest benefits is how bone broth promotes digestive health through healing the gut, as well as reducing inflammation and inhibiting infection.
Okay, so back to the recipe … it is SO simple and delicious that I often serve this with a side of Grain-Free Chile-Cheese “Cornbread” as an easy meal for entertaining guests. Cause seriously – who doesn’t love chili? Now, now, don’t comment if you’re a chili-hater, because that will just ruin my delusion that everyone’s a chili fan just like me, right? And likewise for the chili-purists out there, yes, this is more of a chili-style stew, but again, let’s not split hairs, let’s just eat!
