511 gm Chicken breast, boneless, skinless
3 cup Chicken broth (stock)
2 tsp Chili powder
1 tsp Cumin (ground)
1 cup Diced tomatoes, canned
2 whole lime(s) Lime juice (fresh)
2 cup Red kidney beans, raw
1 tbsp Salt
2 tbsp Turkey fat
1 medium Yellow onion (diced)


Brown your onions in 1 Tbsp. of the turkey fat.

Then add the tomatoes. 

Cook these down, then add the spices. 

Once the mixture is cooked down, pour it into a blender and puree the ingredients.

Next, brown your chicken breasts with the other Tbsp. of fat. 

Brown each side of the breasts, then re-add your mixture to the pot. 

Add 2 Tbsp. of lime juice to the mixture and slow cook for 3 to 4 hours.

While this is going on, add your beans, lime juice, and chicken broth to a pot. 

Cook the beans over 3 to 4 hours, they are ready once you can easily press down on the beans.
