There’s a reason everyone loves one-pot recipes, particularly around the holidays. Between wrapping gifts, fighting crowds at the mall and making the house guest-ready, the last thing you want to do is spend hours preparing a meal. Luckily, you can just throw chicken, beans, spices and broth into one pot and make a stress- and mess-free chili to serve the whole family. Bonus? This warming chili leaves out tomatoes, helping to fend off the inconvenient indigestion that strikes up whenever you’re under pressure.
