This a recipe I came up with after getting a few ideas from a friend. The combination of chipotle and cilantro really complete this chili.

I made a few changes to this one. I actually won a Chili cookoff with this. Instead of the Green Sauce I added Diced Green Chili's. It was a hit! The flavor was wonderful!! Read More

This recipe was not quite right for me. It was a good jumping off point but as soon as I added the 3 cups of chicken stock in place of the water (I never did ad the other two!) it never got back on track from there. I had to doctor it up with more than double the spices and extra beans. I think good chili doesn't really need a recipe it's best made to taste. Read More

This is a very delicious chili. I loved that it contained chicken for a nice twist and the 2 types of beans added nice color with the corn & peppers. Very colorful. I happen to enjoy a very spicy chili so I added about 1/2 tbl. more chili powder 1/2 tbl more cayenne pepper 2 diced jalapenos & 1 tsp more cumin powder. I also found the chili to be a little too runny because of all the water. I simmered for an extra 20 minutes and it was still "soupier" then I prefer. Next time I would add 3 cups during the first step adding water in the recipe but I would only add 1 cup in the second step adding water in the recipe. I served it by topping with sliced jalapenos sour cream shredded mexican cheese & chopped cilantro. Will make again... Read More

Great Recipe! Family likes it. Reduce to 4 cups of water(I used chicken both ) for a thicker chili. And I used chicken thighs in place of chicken breast. Read More

Great! Always looking for ways to add beans and fiber to meals. Could not find green Tobasco locally so added a small can of green chiles to the mix. Will make this one again. Read More

I also added a can of diced tomatoes (as suggested by another reviewer) but still added the corn (omitted by that reviewer) and reduced the water by 2 cups (we like a thick chili). Very excellent. Read More

I thought this recipe was wonderful. The aroma of all the spices just woke the sences. The cilantro was a refreshing addition to the recipe. I let the water in the first part of the recipe simmer a liitle more than it asked and then add the second part and the chili was thick enough A well rounded Chili. Will make again!!!:) Read More

I really loved this. I've gotten lucky recently finding chili recipes that are different from the usual. (Not that the usual is bad.) I thought the chicken made a big difference and I like a variety of beans. Except I admit to not even knowing what chipotle is and used ground cayenne instead so I don't know if this made a big difference -- I just liked the chicken and the spiciness.:-) Read More
