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.
