Before you start
A slow cooker is needed to make this recipe.
- Prepare the vegetables. Chop the onion, mince the garlic and chili pepper, and finely dice the bell pepper.
- Heat half the oil in a skillet or a pan over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic about 3 min until the onion is soft and translucent, with occasional stirring, paying attention not to let them burn. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Pour the remaining oil into the same pan, heat over medium heat, and add the ground chicken. Cook about 5 min, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until the meat loses its pink colour.
- Place the onion mixture, the chicken as well as diced tomatoes, tomato paste, diced bell pepper, minced chili pepper, cumin, and brown sugar into the slow cooker. Add the broth. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on 'low' for 4 h.
- A few minutes before the end of cooking, start to cook the rice.
- Drain the beans, rinse them and drain again. Add them to the slow cooker with the chili, mix well, and cook an additional 8-10 min. Add salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with freshly chopped cilantro leaves, garnish with lime wedges, then serve over the steamed rice.
