Tip #1

The definition of chili varies depending upon who you ask. Some would say beans are absolutely necessary, while others wouldn't think of adding beans to their chili. Other debates rage over ground beef versus cubed beef, or whether to use beef at all. Another area that is "hotly" debated is what kind of chile pepper goes into the chili: ancho, New Mexico, chipotle and serrano are some of the varieties favored by "chili-heads".

I love this soup and so does everyone I make it for! Highly recommend it. Watch out for the chipotle chiles. They can really give it a kick.

I abolutely loved this meal and so did my family and friends!! I will say that I did not use the Chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce because we do not like it that hot. But, even without that it has plenty of flavor and spicyness from the pinto beans with jalapenos!! I can't wait to make it again! Also, we used shedded cheese along with lime and red bell peppers for toppers! Oh, another thing that we did different from the recipe was to serve it with "Hint of Lime Tortille chips!!

If you like spicy you'll like this! It's hot and it is satisfying and healthy. I used jarred jalepenos to accompany the pintos as per suggested substitution and it was great. I DID mix a little corn starch in because I found it was more like a hearty soup than a chili when i finished. Either way it's delicious!

This is easy and tastes great. Everyone loves this chili, even the die-hard beef chili fans. I love to make a double batch in my dutch oven over the fire when we camp.

Like it hot? This is the recipe for you. And... if you are penny concious...all of the ingredients are available at your local Wal-Mart Super Store. Don't forget to use FRESH Cilantro.. it makes the Chile. I'd like to personally thank the person who created this recipe.
