My family loved it. I followed the recipe. I couldn't find the diced tomato with chiles, I used fire roasted diced tomatoes instead. I garnished with dollops of guacamole and sour cream. Sprinkled the bowl with sliced black olives, shredded cheese and scallions. Served with corn bread. It was very good.

I adore this recipe. It can be altered and adapted easily depending on taste or mood. I think the chipotle chili is a key ingredient though. super yummy and one of my favorites.

This is a wonderfully rich and flavorful chili that satisfies both veggies and meat eaters alike. I like to stir in some "Morningstar Crumbles" for added texture and protein when I sautee the onions and garlic. My husband also likes a little extra heat so I stir in some red pepper flakes to meet his taste. This is a simple, quick and delicious comfort food that is not only healthy but very satisfying as well, and perfect for autumn and winter!!
