Chorizo & Black Bean Chili by Andrea

  • 2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 2 1/2 cups chopped onion, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped red bell pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 links Spanish chorizo sausage, browned
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 (15-ounce) cans black beans, drained
  • 3 (14-ounce) cans diced
  • 1 (8 1/2-ounce) can corn, drained
  • 1 1/2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped


Remove 2 chiles from can; finely chop. (I have put these into a separate bag so you can decide how hot you want your chili.)
Heat a large Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add chiles, 1 3/4 cups onion, bell peppers, garlic, and chorizo; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add chili powder and next 7 ingredients (chili powder through corn), stirring to combine. At this point it can be bagged to freeze.

From Frozen:

Defrost and add as much chipotle chilies (from baggie #2) as your family would enjoy.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, and simmer, covered, 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat;  stir in chocolate (from baggie #3).  Add salt and pepper to taste.  This is good topped with sour cream.
