I received some chipotle peppers in a swap and this was my first time using them, they give a lovely subtle heat. I made this in the crock pot and also added some mushies, green pepper and some beans so mine was more like chilli con carne..served with some sour cream & cheese and buns, this was a lovely winter warming dish!
