This is chili is not only spicy but very healthy. Adding rice to the beans greatly increases to protein content, and increases the meals from this, and in combination with the chicken, it is a very high protein meal. The peppers have all sorts of anti-microbial benefits as well as triggering the release of endorphins. So, you can eat this instead of going out and running 10K.

Instructions
  1. In a large, deep, frying pan on medium low heat, And just a tablespoon or so of olive oil and add the cubed chicken. Cover while cooking right from the start! This does not really fry the chicken. it ends up releasing the juices and sort of boils and steams the chicken. Turn the heat down if it looks like it's frying.
  2. Stir in the onion, fresh peppercorns, dried Entero Pepper, and any other peppers you have diced and let it cook, stirring occasionally.
  3. Once the chicken is cooked to the center of the cubes, add the remaining ingredients and stir, there should be enough liquid to cover about half of what is cooking, if there isn't, add some water or chicken stock. Add as much rice as you like to bulk up the chili, using 1 bean can of rice is simply a guide.
  4. Simmer until you are too hungry to wait any longer. Add hot sauce if desired.
  5. A note on the 4 Bean Salad, I use this brand, fiamma. If using this brand I use the liquid from the can as well, just open and pour the contents into the pan. If using other brands, I normally drain that liquid and use water or chicken stock as the liquid, basically open the can, drain, add water or chicken stock to the contents of the can, then pour that into the pan, there, you have the right amount of liquid.
Recipe Notes

The chicken costs 60 Baht, the 4 Bean Salad costs 54 Baht. 114 Baht total, other items are normally on hand. This comes out to just over $1 per meal for 3 meals or for 3 people. Adding more rice this could be stretched to 4 meals, and less than $1 per meal.

Instead of using the can of bean salad, you can also use dried beans, which on average is 40 Baht for 500 grams. Beans I use is Pinto or Black-eyed Peas. You will need to soak these overnight and then boil them before use in this recipe. The advantage is not only lower cost, but gives you a lot more beans, use the whole bag of beans, this would increase the number of meals, also reducing the cost per person.

Overall a very reasonable meal that is very nutritious and healthy.
