  • I’ve made this chili 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!
