Tips

Expert Tips

  • Chipotle chili powder adds a complex, deep, smoky flavor to this chili. Chipotle chili powder comes from ground chipotle chilies, which are dried, smoked jalapeño chilies.
  • Omit the kidney beans. Stir in 1 1/2 cups cut-up cooked chicken or turkey with remaining ingredients in Step 2. Continue as directed.
