BBQ CHIPOTLE CHILI – Italian sausage, ground beef, and a variety of other ingredients combine to create a flavorful bowl of chili in my BBQ chipotle chili.
It’s time for recipes for comfort meals. This barbecue chipotle chili dish is fantastic. I wanted to give the traditional chili a new spin, and this meal really embodies the fall recipe brief.
