In a Dutch oven, add the oil and brown the chicken until it is cooked through and there is no pink. Add the onions, garlic and chili powder and stir for about 2-3 minutes. Add in the beans, tomatoes, spinach, tomato paste and water and mix well.


Reduce heat to low and simmer covered for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes or so to make sure it's not sticking to the bottom.

Cooks' note:
We don't like our chili too hot, but you could certainly use more chili powder if you like extra heat.
