    gaylasikes's Note:

    I found this in the local newspaper and can't wait to try it. notes from the author: Toasting the cumin and coriander takes a little time, but improves the flavor of the chili. Skip the step if it makes your life easier. If the chicken thighs have bones, go ahead and stick them in the slow cooker. The meat will literally fall off the bone after 8 hours of cooking, and you can just remove the bones with tongs and discard them. UPDATE: So I've made this twice since posting. Everyone loves it. The chunks of avocados on top really make this dish. Setting up a buffet of toppings makes this really fun for the kids. This is a must try for a cold day.

      Very tasty. I used bone-in thighs and it was a cinch to pull the bones out after the meat had shred itself. Served with avocado and sour cream, it wasn't too spicy for the kids. It does stay 8 hours on high.

      We loved this chili! I tried it with some cilantro and avacado and it was good but I think it is just as good just as is. I follwed the recipe exactly using dried beans and on high for 8 hours exactly. Seasoning and everything were spot on. Thank you for sharing. I am on an elimination diet and good warm comforting food is hard to come by. This was great!

      I am pretty sure I mis-read the bean part, and used 2 cans of canneloni beans where I should have used DRIED beans ! It was all very tasty but THIN, where the cooking starch from the beans would have thickened it. Sorry, galasikes -- I will pay more attention next time.
