1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 pounds lean ground chicken
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, finely diced
1/4 cup chilli powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch ground clove
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
One 15-ounce can no-salt-added pinto beans
One 15-ounce can no-salt-added cannellini beans
One 28-ounce can no-salt-added diced tomato
6 sun-dried tomatoes, finely chopped
1 tablespoon minced chipotle in adobo
2 teaspoons molasses
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
Freshly ground black pepper
4 sliced spring onions, for garnish
Lime wedges, for garnish
Reduced fat sour cream, for garnish, optional

Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick pan over high heat. Add half of the ground chicken and 1/2 teaspoon salt, cook, breaking the meat apart with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer the chicken to the slow cooker insert. Repeat with the remaining chicken using another 1 teaspoon of oil and another 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Turn the heat down to medium and add the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil to the pan. Add the garlic and onions, stirring and scraping up any browned bits in the pan, until the onions soften, about 5 minutes. Add the chilli powder, cumin, cinnamon and clove, and stir constantly for 1 minute to cook the spices. Pour in the chicken broth and scrape the bottom of the pan. Transfer to the slow cooker, along with the pinto and cannellini beans and their bean liquid, the diced tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, chipotle, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, 2 teaspoons salt and some black pepper. Cover and cook on the low setting for 6 hours.

Serve with spring onions, lime wedges and sour cream, if using.
