Chili is one of those one pot meals that comes in so many different packages. It can be sweet, spicy, tomato based, non tomato based, beans or no beans. You can't go wrong. Today we are going to our Crossfit gym's chili cook off and this chili is my entry! The kind of chili I make depends on what kind of mood I'm in and today it's spicy. If you are looking for a chili with some heat you have come to the right place!
It's literally packed to the rim with spices and multiple varieties of peppers. I have never cooked with chipoltle or poblano peppers before and I really wanted to try it in this chili recipe...so I did!
It's also a very easy meal because you pour all the ingredients into the pot and let it simmer for a few hours and you are done! Or you can cook this in the slow cooker too and not worry about it at all!
The outcome is amazing! I think this is definitely one of my better chili batches and I hope everyone else thinks so too! ( I will update this post later and tell you all about it!)
