Author Notes

This has become our "go to" chili recipe. We love spicy food and we especially love anything with chorizo or chipotle. It was originally inspired by a Cuisine at Home recipe for Chorizo chili. But over the years we've messed with it that really the only thing that is always consistent is that it still includes both chipotle & chorizo. The version we are sharing today includes adding roasted tomatoes and jalapeno. If you love smoky flavors like we do this chili is for you. —The Foodie Couple
