I made this chili on cold, blustery Saturday. It was the perfect meal when coming in from shoveling snow! I started it early in the morning and let the slow cooker "do its thing" all day. It had a smokey flavor from the chipotle peppers (I put in extra!) and smooth and creamy texture from letting the beans cook all day. Another comment said that the beans were hard, but I didn't have a problem!I soaked them overnight and added them directly to the pot. Delish!
