  • Place beans in a large, heavy pot. Add enough cold water to cover by at least 3 inches. Cover and soak overnight.
  • Place chicken in a large, heavy saucepan and add cold water to cover. Bring to a simmer. Cook until just tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and cool. Remove skin and cut chicken into cubes.
  • Drain beans into large colander. Heat oil in same pot. Add onions and saute over medium-low heat until translucent, about 10 minutes. Stir in garlic, green chiles, cumin, oregano, cloves and cayenne. Saute 2 minutes. Add beans and stock. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until beans are very tender, stirring occasionally, about 3 to 4 hours. Add additional water if necessary. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and bring to a simmer before continuing.) Add chicken, beer and 1 cup of cheese. Stir until cheese melts. Ladle chili into bowls. Serve with remaining cheese, sour cream, salsa and cilantro leaves to sprinkle on top.

    I LOVE THIS CHILI! My girlfriend has been making this for years and I finally made my own pot. I ADORE IT! I do love a meaty, dark chili and i know that is my hubby's fave, but for me, this lighter chicken chili is THE BEST!!! Thanks for posting!
