Mealthy Tip

Using your pressure cooker to make chili removes the need to simmer it for a long time to build the flavors. You'll be amazed at the complexities you can achieve without waiting for hours and hours! For a spicier chili, add the chipotle seeds into the pressure cooker as well. If you like a milder heat, simply scrape the seeds from the chipotle pepper and discard before chopping and adding to the chili.

This chili was incredible! I made it for a chili cook-off at my office and won first place. All credit due to Ms. Chambers for creating an amazing recipe.

Perfect for those chili winter nights (pun intended). Just like mom used to make when we were young.

I love when a chili recipe doesn't use ground beef! After the beef, the star of this show is the chipotle. I added a small chunk of chocolate (yes, chocolate!) and a pinch of cinnamon because I got that from a recipe once upon a time and sometimes just feel it's right. It worked well. Not saying you'll notice either. Maybe it's placebo effect. Either way, they work well with the chipotle and hearty amount of adobo I put in (and all the pepper seeds). Great chili. GREAT!

Wow! Great recipe, perfectly seasoned, nice change of pace from ground beef chili recipes. I doubled the recipe (I have an 8 quart pot) and the only modification was that I used 2 cans of kidney and one can of black beans.

Adrian Breitenbach says:

OMG YUM. I can't have beans, I am not sure why, black beans, pinto, kidney, and a few other beans cause problems for me, so I just threw a cup of dried lentils in instead, and it turned out great! sprinkled some cheese on top and sour cream, and ate it with corn chips. Had plenty of leftovers for the best chili cheese dogs the next day.

Flavor was wonderful. It was very soupy. Not sure if I did something wrong?

It was super soupy and I followed the directions. Smells great!

I should have scrolled down to the bottom of the reviews which are more like my own results. Chili has great flavor but is very soupy. Not like the photo at all and not like how I imagine chili.

Terrible! Watery and bland. I followed the recipe in the book and I’m extremely disappointed.

This is the best chili I had, made and enjoy! This is a go to meal my husband and I make weekly.

S Vaughn says:

More of a stew than a chili - agree with other comments that this is watery. Flavor is just okay - eased back on the chili because my visiting parent do not like really spicy dishes, and it was still too spicy for them. Spice was just right for me used only 2/3 of the chilies and cayenne.
