Mild and mellow with layers of spice, this go-to chicken chili recipe is sure to please. It's equally delicious whether you're cooking in a Dutch oven in the back country or entertaining friends at home. This version is mild, but packed with flavor from Adobo, Cuban Spice and Mexican Oregano. This is our favorite version, but you can play with different flavor profiles by changing the Cuban Spice to a chili powder like Chipotle, Ancho or New Mexico Chili Powder. Adobo is the perfect spice base for all Latin soups and stews. A simple shortcut to flavor, it includes onion, garlic and cumin.
