Reviews for Chipotle-Black Bean Chili

This recipe is very tasty when made as stated! If you like a lot of heat, then add more chipotle peppers. My kids prefer less, so I cut down on them when making this. For something different, I sometimes brown polenta slices with a little olive oil or butter and use as a garnish along with cheese and sour cream. It's also good with the stew simply ladled on top of the fried polenta.
Great flavor! I did spice it up a bit by using black beans with diced jalepenos (I may cut that down next time though to 1 can reg, 1 can w/ jalepeno)! Served w/ homemade chili lime tortilla chips!
This recipe is very easy to make. My family loved this chili so much they want me to make more and freeze it for lunches. I used extra lean ground beef in my chili as that's what I had on hand. I cooked the beef first before I added it in the slow cooker.
Loved it! My kids aren't big fans of beans, so I used a 4# roast and the kids ate the meat and loved it.
The meat was very tender. It could have been spicier, but it had good flavor and was great with a little sour cream and cheese on top!
