We really enjoyed this chili. Having a DH who is pre-diabtes, this fit right in with his calorie and carb allowance. I think next time I will add an extra chipolte pepper as we like spicy or maybe not scrape all the seeds out. We will be making this again. Thanks for posting.

  2. Add the cumin and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  3. Add the ground beef; raise the heat to high and cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until the meat is no longer pink.
  4. Stir in the tomatoes, water, chipotle and adobo sauce, oregano and salt and pepper.
  5. Cook, partially covered, stirring from time to time, for 30 minutes. Stir in the beans and continue cooking, partially covered, 20 minutes longer.
  6. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
