Variation: Chili powders are blends of spices, so try different brands to find the ones you like.
Cooking Tip: The spices in this dish are double-developed: once when they cook with the onion, pepper, chilies, and tomato paste, and again when they simmer away in the pot.
Nutrition Note: The beans, tomatoes, and chicken put this on my "good-for-you" list.
Serving Suggestion: Leftover chili pairs with a 28 ounce tube of polenta to make a great chili pie. Lightly coat an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pour about 3 cups of chili into the pan. Top with 1/2-inch-thick slices of polenta and sprinkle with 2 cups already-shredded Cheddar cheese. Bake in a 350 F oven until the filling is bubbly and the cheese melts.
