A bowl of this comfort-food chicken chili for dinner will leave even the most dedicated meat eater satisfied. The recipe was featured on "Mad Hungry" TV.  

Easy Chile Verde

If you order a bowl of authentic Mexican chile verde in the Southwest, you'll find hunks of juicy, tender pork shoulder that have been braised for hours in a tart tomatillo-chile sauce. While the original is worthy of a special weekend project, we wanted a recipe that we could make on any lazy Sunday and still be delicious. By using storebought ingredients that bring maximum flavor with the minimal amount of fuss, we created a hearty and warming chile verde that is practically hands-off. In a rush? Try the pressure-cooker version of this recipe, instead.

Black-Bean and Sweet-Potato Stew

This satisfying vegetarian stew is ready in about an hour—and more than half that time is hands-off. Opting for canned beans instead of dried put this recipe on the fast-track, and velvety, earthy sweet potatoes, nutty quinoa, and smoky chipotle peppers provided complexity and depth without the need for an all-day simmer.
