Notes

This recipe calls for 1 chipotle chili plus 1 TBSP of the adobo sauce, I actually double this because I love the heat!  Feel free to adjust this for your spice tolerance level!

Leftovers go great over rice, noodles or a baked potato.

If you have my Homemade Mexican Spice Blend on hand, you can simply replace the spices listed above with 2 1/2 TBSP of this blend Homemade Mexican Spice Blend

This chili will keep in the fridge for 5 days, it also keeps very well in the freezer for 3 months.

I based the nutritional value for 1 1/2 cup per serving. Prep/Cook time based on pressure cooker directions.
