An economical, hearty and delicious chili with lots of flavor and a well balanced heat level. Ground turkey makes this chili healthier but you would never know by tasting it. Even people who do not like ground turkey have enjoyed this dish. A common complaint of crockery cooking is that the flavor is diminished with the long cooking time which makes chili a fantastic choice for the crock pot. The slow cooking gives these ample herbs and spices time to blend together and allows the heat level to mellow. Canned chipotle chilies (smoked jalapenos in adobo- a spicy flavorful sauce) add a wonderful spark of smokiness that is difficult to duplicate and sets this chili apart from others. Controlling the heat level is easy by choosing mild, medium or hot Rotel. Beer is an important flavor ingredient here and regular beer gives a much better flavor than light beer. I use Shiner Bock which is a darker lager. You control whether you want to leave your chili thick and chunky as it is here or make it thinner by adding more broth. You can also add a little more beer with the broth if you like. That is IF you did not drink it already! For a great morning time saver I prepare this the night before and store it in the refrigerator. In the morning I just take it out, plug it in and turn it on. I hope the aroma and flavor of this chili fills your home with warmth! Made for the Let's go Craze-E contest! Good luck to all contest participants!
