Spicy Chipotle Chuck Wagon Chili

This post is sponsored by sprouts. All opinions are my own.

Fall is here, and it’s time for my favorite time of the year. Chili! My latest creation, a spicy chipotle chuck wagon chili, is loaded with so much flavor. It’s my new favorite chili recipe!!

I picked up some fresh chuck roast from my local sprouts grocery store. They offer the same quality of beef that’s served at fine restaurants and steakhouses, at a fraction of the price. Along with high quality spices like their Simply Organic line to use in this recipe, I’m dressing this chuck wagon chili to the nines!

Normally chuck wagon chili has beef stock, but I wanted to bring in a different flavor, but adding dark Mexican beer to the chili and let it cook down. Along with the chipotle seasoning int the chili, Jalapeno and Serrano peppers, and a little semi-sweet chocolate. Its got a bold flavor that really hits the spot on a cold day!

Normally Chuck wagon chili is just the chuck. But I had to give it more character, and added a few cans of beans, and pureed a can of beans as well to thicken it up. It’s one of those bowls of chili that you want to keep coming back to the pot and grabbing more!

    Hi! I was wondering what you thought about using a can of chipotle pepper instead of or in addition to the chipotle powder?

    Also, how many lbs chuck did you use? Thanks!
