I made this recipe because my husband loves chili and it sounded really good. We were both disappointed in it. It just tasted like something was missing - very bland flavor. Adding more chipotle didn't help. Also, browning the chuck steak and then adding it to the slow cooker for a half hour isn't nearly enough time for the chuck steak to be tender. It was tough. We tried it for dinner and then dumped the leftovers.
