Chipotle Chicken Chili

Filled with creamy tender beans, smoky peppers, chunky tomatoes, and topped with fresh lime and avocado, this chili is the answer to a cold winters day!


A Dutch oven is the best pot for making soups and stews. Its heavy cast iron lid keeps the moisture inside, and its thick walls hold the heat well for long simmering.


Once everything is mixed in, cover and let simmer for 20-30 minutes. If want a thicker stew, remove the lid and allow to simmer uncovered for another 10 minutes or until it reduces to your likeness.
