The beguiling flavor of jerk seasoning transforms ordinary white beans and chicken in this easy-to-make chili. You simply sauté some chopped sweet onion, Vidalia if you can find it, and toss in some leftover chicken. It’s up to you how much hot pepper sauce to add at the end, as well as what to use for garnish: chives, cilantro, mango…I get hungry just thinking about it! With the addition of crusty bread and a green salad, you’ve got dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium-size sweet onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups cubed, cooked chicken
  • 1 teaspoon jerk seasoning
  • 2 cans (15.5 ounces each) white beans, with their liquid
  • 1 chicken-flavored bouillon cube
  • Dash of hot pepper sauce, or more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • Chopped fresh chives, chopped and whole fresh cilantro leaves, and/or diced mango and red bell pepper, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

Cut the onion in half lengthwise, then cut each half crosswise into thin half-moon slices; you’ll need 1 cup.

Place the olive oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the sliced onion and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon until soft, 3 minutes. Add the chicken and jerk seasoning and cook, stirring, until the chicken is coated with the seasoning, 1 minute longer. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the beans with their liquid and the bouillon cube and hot pepper sauce. Fill one of the bean cans with water, add this to the pan, and stir. Place the pan over high heat until the liquid comes to a boil and the bouillon cube dissolves. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan, and let the chili simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the cream to the chili, if desired, stir, cover, and cook for 2 minutes longer. Ladle the chili into serving bowls and serve garnished with chopped chives, cilantro, and/or diced mango and red bell pepper, if desired.
