how to make chipotle taco chili
The thing I love about chili is it’s a low and slow cooking process. That means a little work up front then you just let it simmer and do it’s thing while you can do other things (like watch football or enjoy your day!).
First, you blend together the chipotle chili peppers and crushed fire roasted tomatoes. Both of these ingredients add a smokey depth of flavor that makes this dish shine. The peppers also add a little spicy surprise!
Next, heat olive oil in a large dutch oven or soup pot. Add the onions and peppers. This again helps add depth of flavor that makes the chili truly flavorful. Add the fresh, diced garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes or until fragrant.
Then, you add the ground sirloin. I went with sirloin because it’s a leaner ground beef, so less fat and a bit healthier. I also decided to do ground beef so fit the taco theme. But you could also use ground chicken or turkey!
You will next add the spices, chili powder, chipotle chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic, and of course, salt. These spices help wake up the chili and add tons of flavor. Once those are fragrant, you will add tomatoes paste and cook for 1-2 minutes. I love how concentrated the tomato paste is because it really helps brings richness to the dish.
Finally, add the remaining ingredients, beer, beef broth, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, beans and the crushed fire roasted chipotle pepper mix. Now the work is done and you just let let chili simmer and develop flavor for about 45 minutes. Once it’s done, taste, adjust seasonings as necessary, then enjoy!
How to top this chipotle taco chili
I love to top the chili with all the taco fixings. I’m talking dollops of greek yogurt (or sour cream), shredded cheddar cheese, jalapeños, cilantro, and tortilla chips. With the toppings and chipotle flavors, this really is just like a taco in a bowl! So good!
This taco chipotle chili is perfect for cozy Fall nights or Sundays watching the game. Plus, it made healthy and extra delicious using Jewel-Osco’s organic products.
