Beef And Bean Chipotle Chili
I found this recipe in my cooking bible… Cook’s Illustrated ~ The New Best Recipe Revised Edition. It was a cool day and we were having friends over for dinner so I went in search of a good chili recipe. I adapted their recipe just a bit by adding less chili powder (my family doesn’t care for it too much) and adding chipotle peppers & adobo sauce. The chili simmered all afternoon long and made my house smell incredible. It was spicy, smoky, and delicious! We all thought it was fantastic, although it was a bit too spicy for the three youngest kids. I served it with saltine crackers, sour cream, sharp cheddar, and green onions along with some cornbread.
Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, red bell pepper, chili powder, cumin,. . .
