For the chili:

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 28 oz can fire-roasted crushed tomatoes
  • 3 teaspoons ancho chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon roasted garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon dried cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon Mexican oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt

For the biscuits:

  • cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup beer (I used and recommend an IPA)
  • 1 cup shredded white sharp cheddar cheese


For the chili

  • Heat the oil in a skillet or multi-cooker over medium high heat
  • Brown chicken until fully cooked, using spoon or spatula to break up into crumbles
  • Transfer chicken to slow cooker and add remaining ingredients
  • Cover and cook on high for 2-4 hours or low for 4-8 to give flavors time to meld
  • Serve with shredded cheese if desired

For biscuits

  • Sift flour, baking powder and salt into large mixing bowl
  • Cut cold butter into small cubes and then use a fork or a pastry cutter to "cut-in" to flour mixture until crumbly
  • Slowly mix in beer while stirring until just combined
  • Add cheese and stir to combine
  • Drop by spoonfuls onto parchment lined cookie sheet
  • Bake at 450 degrees for 9-11 minutes or until lightly golden brown
