Directions

  1. Cook sausage and ground beef in a large pot over medium-high heat until lightly browned and crumbly. When the meat has released its grease, and has begun to brown, drain off accumulated grease, and season with chili powder, cumin, and coriander. Cook and stir for 1 minute until fragrant, then stir in the garlic and onion. Cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 4 minutes.
  2. Stir in the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, kidney beans, chipotle peppers, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer, then pour the chili into a slow cooker. Cover, and cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours. Stir in tomato paste an hour before the chili is done.

Tasty. Too much meat in my opinion...and I only used 2 of the 3 pounds. Increasing the chipotles is a good idea if you like things a little spicier. Overall thought this recipe was too acidic. M...

We loved this chili. I did however double the amount of chipotle peppers and sauce because we liked a little more spice

I used the entire can of Adobo Peppers, including the sauce. It added quite the kick, but it tasted fantastic.

I thought this was great, however next time I will probably omit entirely the 1tsp of salt - I found it to be quite salty, even though I made sure to use low-sodium ingredients where possible. O...

I can't give this a 5 star b/c I didn't make it exactly as written. I left out the sausage completely and just used ground beef. Also, we doubled the amount of chipotle peppers, could have pos...
