      Very good! I did wimp out with the chipoltle chiles only using one. I did not like the way the shitake mushrooms looked at the supermarket so I used a pound of baby bellas and I loved them in the chili. Good chili and I have leftovers for lunch :)

      This is one of my regulars.
      I love it. Those little peppers are hot. I freeze the rest of the can for my next batch. Glad you posted.
      This is perfect out of the freezer. Thanks.
      This makes way more servings.

      This recipe is fantastic! The first time I made the recipe though, I misread the instructions and used two CANS chipotle chilies in adobo rather than the two CANNED chilies in adobo. The chili was inedible...but I tried making it again and got it right. I'm not a fan of onions so I left them out...and added rounds of cornbread on top before serving (Jiffy cornbread with a handful of shredded cheddar).
