Since I woke up to a wintery cold morning the other day, I wanted to share this new chili recipe. Of course, since it’s Colorado, the snow had completely melted away within hours and the sun was shining bright. I’m still going with the chili vibe for today though, because it is still winter after all. 😉

Ingredient Notes For This 30-Minute Chicken Chipotle Chili:

  • Just a quick note about this chili: I’ve made it a number of times and every time I do, I make it a little bit different. Sometimes I add only 1/2 lb. of ground hamburger, sometimes I add more chipotle peppers and other times I add less spices. Ultimately though, I enjoy the ground chicken which lends to a lighter/healthier chili. So just use this as a guide. Kind of make it your own and have fun!
  • Cheese – For this recipe, you can either use a dairy-free version or regular cheddar cheese.
  • Sour Cream – I love the brand Kite Hill. It is so well made and you can’t tell the difference. It is a great alternative.

I hope you love this as much as I do!
