How to Use Up All Those Hard-Boiled Eggs

This chili begins so innocently, like any other chili using ground chicken. You cook the meat, add onions, garlic, jalapeños, salt, pepper, and cumin. Sounds normal, right? Then you add allspice.

In this chili, the creamy sauce is further deepened by chicken stock or broth, and the toppings of hard-boiled eggs and olives are so traditional — in Peru.
