I made this chili a couple of nights ago.. It was delicious. I think I liked it because it had less chili powder than I usually put in my chili plus the chipotle and adobo rather than cumin. Hope you enjoy it.
brown the beef, onions and garlic in some olive oil. add the chipotle and chili powder, cook for a minute or two. Then add the tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes, beans and spices. cover with water ... to about 2 inches above the meat. Then mix the masa with a little water and stir into the chili. bring to a boil and then simmer for 30 min.
