If you can't get chipotle chile powder, just use 1/2 teaspoon more regular chili powder. This makes 6 small bowls of chili or 4 large ones. Click the photo to see a close-up.
If you like thicker chili, add a little xanthan gum before simmering. I used about 1/2 teaspoon and it seemed about right. Lightly sprinkle a little at a time over the surface of the chili while quickly mixing it in. I also cooked mine for only about an hour this time and it was still good.
