Sometimes I wonder why I'm not working in a kitchen full-time, but until cooking pays the bills, this will have to be my side passion. A few weeks ago for Halloween we had a few friends over so that our kids could go trick-or-treating together. It was a great time. We usually do a pot-luck, and each family is responsible for preparing a dish. I decided to make a Chicken Chili. I used Anaheim, Pasilla, and Tomatillo chile's, roasted corn, and white beans. I seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, cumin, and smoked paprika. For the broth, I used chicken stock and coconut milk, and I thickened it with a blond roux. I let the chili come together for about 4 hours. During that time I seasoned it with salt, pepper, cumin, oregano, cayenne, and red pepper flakes until it had the perfect taste.
To accompany the chili, I cut tortillas into thin strips and fried them. Seasoning them with salt and pepper. I folded in fresh cilantro before serving. It was finished with a little dollop of sour cream. Everyone seemed to really enjoy it. Below are pictures. Definitely will keep this one in the recipe binder.
