"Had this for dinner tonight. It was delicious. I didn't have leftover pork so used pork cubed steak, cut into small pieces. I dredged the pieces in flour and browned the meat before adding to the rest of the ingredients. I had 12 oz of meat which seemed like a lot so I added the whole can of beef broth and a can of black beans. Added cilantro and shredded cheese instead of sour cream. I could have eaten the whole pot myself."

"Great recipe! I didnt have any pork so I used chicken cut into cubes instead. Absolutely delicious, I also added a cup of sweet white corn. I had to laugh at the review before mine as I have done the same with a can of chipotle in another recipe before- I now know just how much heat those little peppers pack! This is such a good chili."

"We absolutely love this recipe. I must say the first time Gramps(my hubby) made it he read the recipe as 1 can of chipotle, it was a bit stout, but somehow it was devoured anyway! It is definitely a family favorite!!"
