This is a delicious yet easy chili, perfect for a cozy evening at home!
Turn your Instant Pot to the saute function. Saute carrots for 1 minute. Add ground beef and saute until no pink visible. Add onions and saute until translucent. Add garlic, saute for another 30 seconds. Drain any additional grease as necessary.
Add cumin, chili pepper, salt and chopped chipotle pepper. Stir. Turn off saute function on Instant Pot.
If you don't have an Instant Pot, don't fret (although you may want to consider buying one!). I've been making this chipotle beef chili on the stovetop for years. Use a dutch oven, saute the carrots, beef and onions. (Drain if there is any excess grease). Add spices. Add tomatoes and beans. Simmer for 40 minutes-1 hour. Stir in masa flour slurry. Garnish and serve!
This recipe is a little spicy. My kids will eat it (for reference) but if you have spice adverse eaters, you can decrease the Chili Powder to 2 teaspoons and use only 1 chipotle pepper. Love spice? Go with the full tablespoon of chili powder and feel free to add as many chipotle peppers as you can handle!
