Believe it or not, there is a debate going on in the chili-cooking community about the use of crockpots. There is an argument to be made for food cooked using different methods. For example, smoked ribs will always be better than ribs made in a crockpot.

That doesn’t mean crockpot ribs aren’t delicious, it just means smoking them is better. That brings us to chili. Chili is a dish that is best made slowly, very slowly.

The main ingredients are relatively easy. You will need ground chicken, cannellini beans, and that’s about it. The secret to a good chili is in the things you won’t easily see but easily taste.

Olive oil will help brown the chicken, and shallots, garlic, chili peppers, carrots, green chilis, and chicken stock will add flavor.

The goal is to get the flavors to blend in a way that makes one amazing chili. Then there is the seasoning. The seasoning will definitely not be seen but it will be tasted.

You will need cumin, paprika, oregano, chili powder, lime zest, and, of course, salt and pepper. You can use flour or cornstarch as a thickening agent and don’t forget your favorite toppings.
