1 whole chicken, stewed and deboned
1 onion, chopped
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
4-5 Tablespoons chili powder
A few dashes of cayenne pepper, if desired
2 Tablespoons (or so) flour
Ĺ - 1 tsp. cumin
Ĺ - 1 cup ketchup
ľ c brown sugar
1-2 tsp. cocoa powder
1-2 tsp. oregano, if desired
Salt & pepper to taste
As many cans of beans as you want (kidney, black-eyed peas, white beans, navy beans, black beans, etc.) I usually do 4-6 or so for a big pot, undrained
2-3 cans chopped stewed tomatoes, if desired (I use them) with liquid
Water to cover, if needed

I stew the chicken then start adding everything elseÖtaste it and see what it needs more of! If you donít want so much, donít add as many beans or tomatoes and donít use the whole chicken. Adjust the seasonings. Good luck!
