I really loved what the chipotle does for this recipe. The only change I made was to add some flour to thicken it a bit.

This is now my "go to" chili recipe. The chipotles add such great smokey flavor, and the zucchini adds interesting texture.

It's good, I will probably make it again if I have leftover chilies in adobo sauce cause I usually end of throwing them out when I use them for other recipes. I did like that my husband, who thinks he hates zucchini, said he really liked the big, chunky onions:) I feel so validated.

Good, but nothing special. However, it is pretty quick to make.
