This week’s easy recipe is game day Easy Beer Cheese Chicken Chili. This recipe is a snap to make and would be awesome for halftime refueling.
Recipe serves 4.
2/3 lb. boneless skinless chicken thighs.
1 small yellow onion – diced.
8 oz. Velveeta cheese – sliced into one inch strips to allow for quicker melting.
6 oz. beer (remainder is for the cook).
3 slices thick cut bacon.
32 oz Chicken stock.
2- 15 oz. cans White Kidney Beans – drained of canning fluid and rinsed.
3/4 C water.
2 Tbsp. olive oil (one for frying chicken and one for onions).
2 cloves garlic – minced.
1 tsp. chili powder.
1 tsp. dry cumin.
1/2 dry oregano.
Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to large pot you will use for chili and bring to heat. Add the chicken thighs. On medium high heat fry 4 minutes each side and remove.
Lower heat to low on same pot and add second tablespoon of olive oil. Add the onions and saute until tender. Add the garlic to the pot and stir.
Add the chicken stock, beer, water, chili powder, oregano, and cumin. Stir and bring heat up to bring to boil.
Shred or slicd the partially cooked chicken. Add to pot to finish cooking in the boil for 5 minutes, and then reduce heat to slow boil.
In a fry pan cook the bacon until done but soft. Put one tablespoon of bacon grease into pot. Slice the cooked bacon into 1/3 inch sections and add to the pot. Stir and continue at simmer to slow boil for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir constantly while adding cheese to pot so it does to stick to bottom and burn. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the white beans to the pot and stir. Increase heat to get a nice low boil. Stir occasionally, and cook until beans are tender and the sauce has thickened to a chili style thickness.
All that is left to do now is graciously accept the accolades of your family or guests.
