Chipotle Chicken Chili

Chipotle Chicken Chili Chipotle Chicken Chili

Chipotle peppers bring an outstanding smoky flavor to whatever dish you include them in, but for chili, they're a Godsend. Chili is one of those dishes you can make easy or you can make complex. We opted for the easy method. We only included 2 chipotle peppers in this recipe, but feel free to add more for enhanced smokiness.


  • 2 tablespoons ground guajillo chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground chili para naranja
  • 1 can cannelloni beans (white)
  • 2 chicken breasts, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 quart tomatoes, peeled
  • 1 habanero pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 chipotle peppers, stemmed and chopped
  • Splash of olive oil

Cooking Directions

  1. Heat a frying pan to medium-high heat. Add a splash of olive oil.
  2. Season chicken breast chunks with garlic powder and sear about 1 minute per side. This will help seal in the flavor and texture.
  3. Add chicken to a slow cooker at low heat along with remaining ingredients. Mix well and cover.
  4. Slow cook about 4 hours.
  5. Serve!
