A nice hearty chili with a bite - I used a little less chili powder than recommended, and about 1.5 tbsps of chopped chipotles, and it was pretty much perfectly spicy. Flavourful and filling - thanks so much for the recipe! My chipotle addiction thank you too!

I used chipotle powder instead of canned chipotle chiles and frozen corn instead of carrots. Wonderful smokey flavor with the chipotle.
