    Galley Wench's Note:

    UPDATE 9/09 Finished! This has been a work in progress, but I finally found the perfect formula for chili . . . spicy, but not mouth burning hot! Can't wait for the next chili cook-off!

      Really good chili. I was craving chili but hate stereotypical boring chili. This fit the bill. I like the nod to Mexican/Latin American flavors. I made as instructed except used 4 chipotles and simmered a bit longer. Love the name as well. Don't forget the Cilantro Creme. Thanks for posting!!

      A totally different chili than what I've always eaten. I enjoyed the blend of flavors, especially the beer. 3 chipotles was perfect heat for us. I also made Cilantro Cream to go on top - loved it! Never thought of sour cream on chili. You're so smart ;-) Thanks, Diana, for sharing your recipe!
