Beef & Chicken Chili

So I had some leftover chicken from yesterday and I brought it to school to eat but I wanted something with it. I decided I was going to go to Wendy's and get chili and mix the chicken in, but that never happened. The idea still sounded good though so I made some chili of my own and it turned out pretty yummy.

It was 1 lb ground beef, 2 chicken breasts, 1 medium onion, 1 serrano pepper, 2 tsp minced garlic, 2 16oz cans of black beans, 2.5 cups of salsa, 2 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 2 cups of water, a 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 cup of bloody mary mix.

I browned up the beef with the onion and the pepper, drained it, added the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. I served it over broken up tortilla chips, sprinkled on a little bit of shredded cheese and added a dollop of sour cream.

It was tasty but I would have liked it to be a little more spicy. I think if I do it again I'd use a different kind of pepper, and/or add some hot chili oil or hot sauce.


  1. nice blog goodluck in grad school

  2. Looks good! except..i am a vegetarian haha. Glad you didn't go to wendy's though - fast food isn't that great, in my opinion anyway.

    Anywho, thanks for comment. Yes, the man in the middle with the back pack. It's actually a short story that i did (this is Ria talking by the way). Myself, and Brandon run our blog. I took the photo of him looking at the stranger and then i just made a story out of it.

    Cheers and thanks for taking an interest!
