2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium red onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon chilli powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
1 cup sour cream
1 cup roughly chopped coriander leaves and stems
Juice and zest of 1 lime
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 cups crumbled cornbread
3 medium tomatoes, chopped
One 14-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups shredded yellow Cheddar
Tortilla or corn chips for dipping

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, add half of the onion and the garlic and cook, stirring, until soft and just begins to brown, about 4 minutes. Add the tomato paste, chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the cayenne pepper. Cook, stirring, until the oil is brick red, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Cook until thickened slightly, about 3 minutes. Add the shredded chicken and stir until just warmed through, remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

Whisk together the sour cream, cilantro, lime juice and zest in a small bowl. Toss together the corn and pepper in another small bowl.

Layer the dip in a medium, straight-sided 3-quart glass trifle bowl or your favorite serving dish. Spread the cornbread on the bottom, then top, in even layers, with the tomatoes, beans, cheese, cilantro-lime sour cream, chicken chili, the remaining chopped onions and the corn-pepper mixture.

Wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour or overnight. Serve with chips for dipping.
