Moscow Mule & Chicken Chili Recipes


One of my favorite things to make is chili.  Here on Multi Cultural Cooking Network, we have a couple of variations from veggie to black bean and pumpkin.   Years a ago, we even posted suggestions for wine with chili.   Well, it is time for another pairing.  Moscow mule with specifically chicken chili.   I have no doubt that is would be paired well with other meats but the light taste of chicken with the Moscow Mule is just a great sit back and kick your feet up for a comfortable time at home.

Moscow Mule

Yes, you can use a glass but those popular copper mugs you see in store is for this cocktail.

Let your mug or glass be filled with ice.

Pour equal parts ginger beer and vodka.

Squeeze a bit of lime and use a wedge to garnish.

If you are not a lime fan then this will not make or break the taste.

Chicken Chili

As for the Chicken chili recipe, I am going to differ to Martha Stewart.  After all her recipes should be so good that it’s criminal.









Veggie Chili Recipe

This is just a simple recipe that I concocted over the years using Morning Star veggie crumbles.  For this recipe, I am going toVeggie chili double what I would usually use as a single woman with no kids.  If you are entertainng or have a family of at least for this should work.


  • 2 bags of veggie crumble
  • 2 cans of diced tomato
  • 1 Can of corn
  • 1 can of Black beans
  • 1 to 2 Habernero pepper ( If you don’t like it spicy, omit)
  • 1/4 of chopped Vidalia onion or whole small yellow onion chopped.
  • 2 tablespoons of chili powder.

Combine all the ingredients in a large pot.  Let Cook on stove on medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes.  Unlike meat, veggie crumbles are quickly permeated with flavor.   Serve and enjoy.  This should serve 4 to 6 people.  I enjoy this with cornbread as a side.
