    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    From Better Homes & Gardens “New Cookbook”. You know, the big red (plaid cover) 5-ring binder one. I upped the chili powder here from 2 tablespoons to 4, but you may want to stick with 2. We like it chili-y! To make this slightly less healthy, which (evidently) is my eternal quest, make sure to add lots of cheddar cheese and sour cream. And avocado. And onion. And a big glass of milk. *murp* And maybe, on the side, a timely appointment in the cardiac department. No, seriously, it’s not that unhealthy.

      This was a great recipe. Only change; I used fresh hot peppers and coated the steak in flour before browning. I will definitely make this recipe again....actually, I think it may be my "go to recipe" for chili. :)

      First, I have to say the instruction to drain the water is making me laugh way more than necessary. :-D Second, hthis is really, REALLY good. I had leftover chipotle peppers from another recipe (raspberry chipotle sauce) and I used probably double what the recipe called for, but we like stuff pretty spicy. And I used leftover grilled steak (no oil) and we added light sour cream, home canned tomatoes (no sodium), low sodium beans, and we all know that avocado is a healthy fat, and just a ilttle bit of grated cheddar, so all in all this is actually a pretty healthy recipe. Will most definitely make again.

      This was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and one steak fed my family of 7! The chipotle with adobe added just the right touch of heat . (The small can it came in was way too much so I froze the rest.) I served this with Flour Tortillas DH said this is the recipe you take to potlucks...that is a huge compliment coming from a man used to authentic mexican cooking from his mom and nana....DELICIOUS SANDI!!!!
