Delicious Ham and Chicken Crock-Pot Chili By Frank Ernhart

This very simple chili is made with chicken and ham but ground beef could be substituted for the chicken and or ham if desired. The recipe was based on a number of (edible) experiments in an attempt to match a particular commercial chili originating in Texas. This brand is so popular that I am told that some people who have moved out of the area ordered cases of cans of it shipped to their new residences. I believe the "magic" ingredient that makes this dish stand out is the use of refried beans in place of pinto beans. Because of the high starch content, the refried beans help thicken this dish and also hel spread the marvelous flavor. It's so easy to make, I don't see any reason to buy commercial canned chili, not that I have anything against it. How long has it been since you ate "a steamin' hot bowl of X brand chili" Ah -that's too long. Try this one, I think you will like it. To find 600 plus other free recipes visit my website.
