Chipotle Chili Non-Carne

30 MINUTES OR LESSThis spicy chili really warms the bones on a cold evening. Chipotle powder is made from smoked jalapeño peppers. Look for it in specialty gourmet stores. To make the chili milder, omit the chipotle powder and reduce the chili powder to two teaspoons. MEAL PLAN: Delicious with cornbread. Add a tossed green salad with low-fat bottled cilantro dressing.

Comments on this Recipe

Just tried this recipe for the first time tonight. Absolutely delicious! I cut the recipe in half as I was cooking for one - still had plenty of leftovers. Garnished with sharp cheddar cheese & cut fresh basil.

Well I made a mistake and put in a large can of tomatoes. I also cooked my own black beans as I am watching my sodium. This still turned out so good. I don't think you can ruin this. Since there are just the 2 of us it will last for several meals. My husband cut up Chicken and put it in his. Shame on him. But he did love it. I would give this a 5 Star rating.
