Recipe: Golden Chili

3-IMG_3591If you’re looking for a new chili recipe, this is the one.

It’s chili at it’s finest — all the yummy, spicy, sweet comfort of it — but with a really different flavor.  And no beef.  And no kidney beans.  It’s really unique and completely delicious.

2-IMG_3574These three simple spices make a great flavor combination, but with sausage instead of beef.  And chick peas instead of kidney beans. 

1-IMG_3569This recipe is a Matt-specialty.  He always makes it and I just get to sit back and smell the yumminess going on in the kitchen, then enjoy the prepared dish.  (Another reason this is one of my favorite meals!)

    is the chicken broth a new addition? I have this recipe from you and it didn’t have that in there…still one of our faves though:)

      We usually make it on the stove top, then transfer it to the crockpot so it can stay warm all day (while we sit on the couch watching football). But you could definitely try to just do it in the crockpot. If you do, let me know how it comes out!
