  • 3 chicken breast
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb white beans
  • 1 (15 oz) black beans, drained (optional)
  • 1 (15 oz) kidney beans, drained (optional)
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup cooking wine
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 – 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened chocolate, grated finely
  • 1 – 2 tbsp chili powder, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, to taste
  • sour cream, topping (optional)
  • shredded cheese, (optional)


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Next, rub the chicken breasts with olive oil and season with poultry seasoning and salt. Place the chicken breasts in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes. While waiting, chop the veggies and set them aside. Heat a heavy-bottomed pot and add 2 tbsp olive oil. Once heated through, add the chopped onion and saute for a minute. Next, add the minced garlic, saute for 30 seconds, then add the chopped bell peppers. Saute until soft — season with 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp cumin, and 2 tbsp cinnamon. Mix well. Next, chop the baked chicken breast into bite-size pieces and add them to the pot. Mix well.

Step 2

Next, add the canned tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Mix until well incorporated. Then, add 1 cup of cooking wine and 1 lb white beans. Stir well, then add 2 tbsp chili powder. Cook covered until the beans are soft, about two hours, stirring every 20 minutes. After two hours, stir in 1/4 cup unsweetened chocolate. Serve with some sour cream. Enjoy!
