Good recipe but too much for one crock pot unless there is a giant size out there I am not aware of. You need to 1/2 this one for sure or cook in two different pots. Taste great though.

Delicious chili. It does improve the next day. as most soup and chilis do. Adjust the chipotle to your desired heat level. I used black beans and white kidneys as that was in the cupboard

Best chili ever! The only thing we did differently was to brown the meat fist. Otherwise, it was incredibly flavorful! Used leftovers for chili cheese dogs, Delish! Definitely going to be a stap...

Made this chili and it was the best chili I ever had. Would definitly recomend trying

Totally worth the effort! followed exactly, no substitutions. everyone loved it, and it's now a favorite!

I made this in my instant pot. Browned the meat first, onion, tomatoes, peppers on the sauté mode. Added everything else, mixed it, and turned on the Instant pot for 18 minutes. Wow! So good.

It's fine, nothing fantastic or unique. Needs garlic, more cumin. Chipotle in Adobo is as overrated as sriracha in my opinion. It's good, but not a 5 star.
