Secret Chili Restaurant Recipe – Three Bean Enchilada Chili

Three Bean Enchilada Chili – three times the flavor plus secret ingredients that makes this a secret chili restaurant recipe!

This chili restaurant recipe is a secret restaurant recipe because it specifically calls for Ancho chile powder, and it does make a difference. And this chili recipe is also somewhat unusual because it uses a secret restaurant enchilada sauce instead of tomatoes!

The Ancho is a dried poblano chile which is then ground into powder. Ancho chiles have a mild, fruity and slightly sweet taste. They start out as fresh green poblano chiles and after being ripened to red and then dried, they become shriveled, smoky and dark brown in color. Left to dry, the chiles can be crushed and made into spice powder or used to season chili and other Mexican dishes such as mole and tacos.

I made this recipe at home, tested it on my husband and then tried in at my restaurant after my husband raved about it and encouraged me to do so. My restaurant customers were pleased he questioned me to do so. It is now a favorite restaurant chili recipe.
