Tonight I decided to try something new for dinner. A friend of mine gave me a new recipe and I have been dying to try it all week! When I got off work I went straight to the grocery store and got everything I needed. I ended up buying too many spices ( I couldn't remember what I did and did not have so I just bought everything) so I over bought by about $10. I bought enough to double the recipe and the total was $32.
|All the ingredients together. (I'm a big fan of the off brand!)|
Cheesy Black-Eyed Pea Chicken Chili
- 3 Tbs. Canola Oil
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into bite size pieces
1 Tbs. Paula’s House Seasoning (salt, pepper, and garlic powder)
2 c. chopped white onion
1 c. chopped red bell pepper
1 Tbs, minced garlic
1 (15 oz) can seasoned black eyed peas

1 c. water
1 (1.25 oz) pk. White chicken chili seasoning
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
½ tsp. crushed red pepper
1 (8 oz) pk. Velveeta cheese, cubed
Once you bring everything to a boil don't forget to simmer and cover!

Stir in black-eyed peas, diced tomatoes, water, white chicken chili seasoning, chili powder, cumin, and crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce to low, simmer 20 min. Add Velveeta and stir til melted. Remove from heat.
Garnish with sour cream mix: 2 c. sour cream, ½ c. chopped green onion, and 1 tsp. paprika. Stir together and put on top of each bowl, if desired.
The recipe serves 4 but if you want left overs just double it!
