This chipotle chili is an easy, one-pot meal (which I adore) that is delicious, comforting, and obviously super healthy. My secret ingredient is fennel, which may sound strange in a chili but I promise it is divine. Fennel, commonly used in Italian cooking, is crunchy with a slightly licorice taste when raw. However, cooked fennel takes on a sweeter more mild flavor which works nicely with the smoky chipotle chilies. Fennel is low in calories, high in fiber and a good source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and manganese.
