Chicken Chili

I recently discovered Tammy's Recipes and have been going there for inspiration!  Her recipes look amazing and the two that I've tried so far have been delicious.  The last one I made was chicken chili and it was so yummy!  I served it with my favorite cornbread for a delicious meal!!!

Chicken Chili
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups diced tomatoes (if canned, do not drain)
1 1/2 cups water
1 Tbsp chicken bouillon
2 cups kidney beans
2 cups salsa
1 cup corn
5 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 cups cubed, cooked chicken
Toppings, i.e. Sour cream, shredded cheese, avocado, etc. (optional)

Heat oil in a large saucepan.  Saute bell peppers and onion until tender, but firm.  Add garlic; saute 1 additional minute.

Add tomatoes, water, bouillon, kidney beans, salsa, chili powder, and cumin.

To save money, I used dry beans instead of canned beans.
Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer about 40 minutes, until chili thickens and the flavors have developed and blended.  Add chicken; simmer 10 more minutes; add salt and pepper to taste.  Serve with desired toppings.
