This dish is so easy it’s ridiculous. It is a hearty and healthy dish that my husband loves, and it’s easy for group events, too. On crazy nights, or even a lazy Sunday, pouring a bunch of ingredients into the crock pot and going back six hours later for a ready-to-eat dinner is pretty much everything.
The secret ingredient in this chili is a can of chipotles… just chop them up and add them in for an amazing smoky flavor. You can of course add a chicken or ground turkey if you want added protein, but it’s heart enough without.
