I am always on the lookout for dinner recipes that everyone in the family will enjoy. My oldest son is 21 now and an over the road truck driver. He also loves my homemade chili. In fact, it’s one of the dinners he requests most often. Now that he’s gone for weeks at a time, it’s great to make something he loves when he comes home.
I can’t tell you how proud I am of my oldest son. He had a lot of challenges growing up and made some bad choices. But he was persistent and worked hard to get where he is. Brings a tear to my eye every time I think about it!
If your kids are anything like mine, you can tell them the name of a recipe because they just can’t picture it in their head and hence, automatically hate it. So when they ask, I either don’t answer, or if they are persistent I say “chicken” or “something with ground beef”. Ha ha. I found this recipe for homemade Chicken Chili with Black Beans and Corn on McCormick.com and thought it looked fabulous. I knew once the aroma of the seasonings were in the room, they’d all be chomping at the bit for dinner. I was absolutely right!
It’s too bad videos don’t have “smell-o-vision” because you’d be asking for a dish of this as well. Maybe you saw it on Instagram when I shot this short video. It smelled SO good in the house!
If you’d like to try this recipe, which I highly recommend, be sure to print it off below. You’re going to need the following McCormick® seasonings: Paprika, Oregano Leaves, Cumin, Garlic Powder and Crushed Red Pepper.
You’ll start with cubed chicken, banana peppers (the original recipe calls for green bell pepper, but my husband can’t have them, so any sweet pepper will work) and onions.
While that’s browning, mix together all the seasonings.
Brown until the chicken is no longer pink.
Then all you have to do is add everything else! Couldn’t be easier. Mix it all together, bring it to a boil, then turn it down to low and let it simmer until done.
