Chipotle Chile recipe

This chipotle chile has a great spice and is hot and filling. It's lower in fat than most chili's because it is made with ground turkey, and low-fat cheese. If you prefer to use beef you can substitute with a ground sirloin. Dip into a bowl of chipotle chile with corn chips, tastes great.
