VOTC – Smoky Red Bean Chili with Chipotle-Cornbread Dumplings

This is another great option to cook while away. I might have over done it on the amount of chipotle peppers used (it was hot…very very hot!). Textures all went well together and I think if the heat level had been less I would have enjoyed this more. I love spicy, but, you know, as things rest they get more intense and by the end of the week it was a bit too intense.

This would also be best if served fresh rather than storing leftovers. Sure I still ate the leftovers, but presentation wise it was much better right out of the slow cooker. The dumplings fell apart upon reheating and it sort of became one big mushy chili (still good though). I think the dumplings were the best part…so tender and tasty!
