chicken fajita & white bean chili

25 Apr

theres a great new store around here – the savory spice shop.  The first time i went in there it was overwhelming – spices everywhere – every spice imaginable and some not imaginable!   i walked out with nothing.    the next time i had a little more time to wander around and sniff and examine the spices.   this is one of the recipes i found on that visit.  totally forgot to add the dallop of sour cream and some cilantro to my dish – it really needed it too!  next time i won’t forget!   i did use 2 cans of white beans to beef it up!   i also baked up some tj’s cornbread which is YUM-O!

Chicken Fajita & White Bean Chili

6 tbsp. Family Style Fajita Seasoning, divided
1 tsp. dehydrated minced garlic
1 cup chicken broth or stock
2 tbsp. olive or vegetable oil
1 1/2 lbs. of thickly sliced chicken breast
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp. lime juice, divided
2 15 oz cans petite diced tomatoes, drained
15 oz. can white beans, drained
One of our customers replaced the chicken with steak and won a local chili contest!Directions:
In a small bowl, thoroughly mix 4 tbsp. Family Style Fajita Seasoning and 1 tsp. dehydrated minced garlic into chicken broth and set aside. In a large sauce pan or Dutch oven, over medium high heat, lightly brown the sliced chicken in oil. After the chicken has browned on one side, turn and add cider vinegar and 1 tbsp. lime juice. When browned on second side, strain and reduce heat to medium. Stir in seasoned chicken broth and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add tomatoes, stir in remaining Family Style Fajita Seasoning and lime juice. Cook for 5-6 minutes, reduce to a simmer, stir in the white beans and simmer for 5-6 more minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serving Suggestions:
Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of freshly chopped cilantro.
