From Pillsbury (Cheesy Chorizo Chili), with a few modifications. The canned chipotle chile can be substituted with 1/2 tsp ground chipotle powder if desired. This had a nice slow after-burn made as is; if you like it spicier, add additional chipotles or chipotle powder. Be sure to use the Mexican style fresh chorizo not the Spanish style smoked chorizo.
