I am so sorry...it 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!
This was great, though I made changes... :-S I used 1 lb of ground beef and 1 lb of ground pork and only two cans of beans--red beans and black beans. I also spiced it up and used 2 Tbs of chili powder, 2 tsp of cumin, and chopped (after seeding) 4 large chipotles, plus I used 1 Tbs of the adobo sauce. I thought it was great--the spice wimps in my house just about died! So, I added 1 bottle of Corona, 1 tiny can of tomato paste, and 1 15 ounce can of drained petite diced tomatoes. I simmered for longer so it would thicken up and then we were all happy! (Though they still wanted sour cream and cheese...) Thank you for a keeper!
This is phenomenal -- not only tasty, but easy, too! I made a double batch, but only used 1# of extra lean ground turkey. It worked out just great! I used 4 chipotles AND 2 fresh, diced jalepenos, and it does have a nice bite. I also love cumin and probably close to doubled the amount called for in the recipe. I will make this a regular dish for Sunday football and (with less heat) a great potluck! Thanks, Mathmom.calif for the outstanding recipe.
Very tasty! I added more chipotle, also. I might add a small can of tomato sauce next time, because I like my chili a little "soupier". This was an easy recipe for use in the motorhome, as it used canned beans. I made the turkey version. We had it with cornbread.
I think this is my new favorite recipe for chili. We thoroughly enjoyed this one, heat and all. I followed your recipe exactly with the exception of increasing the chipolte with adobe sauce. We like it hot! Thanks for sharing this one with us.
