Slow Cooker Chipotle Chili

Jeanette Chen of Jeanette’s Healthy Living offers this hearty and satisfying chili, so inviting as the nights get cooler. The smokiness of the chilis reminds her of the taste of summertime grilling and the heat of the dish is easily adjusted with the number of peppers you chose to add. Since this chili freezes well, consider making a double batch to have a quick meal ready on a busy night or for game day.

The optional sage leaves and amaretti cookie crumbs provide wonderful accents of taste and texture.
