Very nice chili, the only deviation was I used chipotle chili powder and it turned out perfect, just because I like the smokyness it gives off. Will make again, thanks for sharing :)

Delicious chili which we enjoyed! I made a few changes by using the whole pound of ground beef and using 2 c of beef broth and 1 cup of chicken broth. i also skipped the corn, cheese and scallions. Thanks for sharing!
