Before you start

A slow cooker is needed to make this recipe.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables. Finely chop the onion, mince the garlic and chili pepper, and finely dice the bell pepper.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the ground chicken, then cook, with occasional stirring, until the meat loses its pink colour, 7-8 min. Add the onion and garlic, then sauté until the onion is soft and translucent, about 3 min. Season with a little salt.
  3. Transfer the mixture to the ceramic cooking pot. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, diced bell pepper, beans, minced chili pepper, cumin, and brown sugar. Pour in the warm broth. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook 6-8 h at low temperature. Alternatively, cook the chili 4 h at high temperature.
  4. Add pepper to taste just before serving. Sprinkle with freshly chopped cilantro leaves, garnish with lime wedges, then serve.
