Three Bean Chipotle Chili

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MathMom.calif

Adapted from the back of a can of S&W brand tomatoes. My family loves this one, and it's so quick and easy to make. One of my faves, too. The original recipe is kicking spicy, and I had to tone it down for my spice-wimps. They STILL say it is too spicy how I make it. Watch out for those chipotle chilis in adobo sauce. They are extremely hot. I use low sodium tomatoes and low sodium beans whenever possible.

I am so took me a long time to make and review, and then I make it and am not a fan. I feel terrible. My DH loved it however. I didn't like that it had to "juice" to it, so I added some beef stock. I used everything to the T..maybe a little more spice because we like it spicy, but it just didn't have anything "special" for me. I'm sure it can be adapted to be outstanding though. Thanks!
