  4. Add the ground beef to the pan and break it up with a spoon
  5. Sauté the beef until it is cooked through and no longer pink
  6. Take 1 or 2 chipotle peppers out of the can (start with 1 if you like your chili less spicy)
  7. Cut the peppers in half, remove the seeds with a knife and chop into small pieces (if you don't have chipotle peppers in adobo, substitute 1-2 tsp chili powder)
  8. Add the crushed tomatoes, peppers , the chopped chipotle peppers, 1or 2 tsp of the adobo sauce from the can (or chili powder), the oregano, salt and pepper to the pan
  9. Add the chicken broth to the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes
  10. Rinse the canned beans in a strainer until the water runs clear
  11. After the chili has simmered for 30 minutes or so, stir in the beans and cook for 15-20 minutes longer. Taste, adjust the seasonings and enjoy! Serve with your favorite toppings such as cheese, sour cream, diced onions etc..
Recipe Notes

A note about chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (or chilies in adobo) if you are gluten intolerant be sure to check the ingredients.  The brands I regularly use: Empacadora San Marcos & La Costena  list no gluten ingredients and I have never had a reaction to them. As always, I recommend that you review the ingredients in the can as brands may vary.  As stated above, you may replace the chipotle peppers in adobo with chili powder if you prefer.
