  1. STEP 1

  2. STEP 2

    Add all remaining chili ingredients. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6-8 hours, or on High heat setting 3-4 hours.

    Just before serving, combine all salsa ingredients in bowl.

Tip #1

- This chili is even better the next day! The avocado salsa is best prepared just before serving.

Tip #2

- Chipotle peppers are large, dried, smoked jalapeño peppers. They are sweet in flavor with tobacco and chocolate tones, a Brazil nut finish and a subtle, deep, rounded heat.
