This recipe was designed and named for using ground chicken, but if you can’t find ground chicken, we have used ground turkey, with no problem.

Brown the ground poultry in a pan and transfer to slow-cooker.

Reduce heat on pan, and add the onions and garlic, adding some more oil if necessary  After the onions and garlic have sweated, maybe 5 minutes.

Add the chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, cloves and stir constantly for 1 minute.  Pour the chicken broth into the pan and scrape and stir until well mixed, transfer to slow-cooker.


Add the pinto and cannellini beans to the slow-cooker, the diced tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, chipotle, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, 2 teaspoons salt and some black pepper. Cover and cook on the low setting for 6 hours.

Can be served with diced/sliced green onions, sour cream, etc.
