I agree with the masa harina/corn starch but be careful coz it will affect the taste of the dish, you can also let it cook a little longer for the liquid to evaporate. beans is a good thickener./.also simmer the chili than boiling it.

How about some dried instant refried beans? Fantastic makes these and so do other companies. More importantly, they would taste "right" for chili.

Another vote for beans, I also sometimes use cornstarch or flour for thickening.

If you like the flavor as is, I would just reduce it and not add any more/different ingredients. I use reduced chili in dips. Just put a serving in a small saucepan and in about 10 minutes on medium heat, stirring, you have really thick chili.

Mashing some of the beans will do the trick. It's the way I thicken bean soups. Or add refried beans - same thing, but will require seasoning adjustment.

Removing some of the liquid helps.

By the way, chili verde, is MY run away favorite chili.

It depends on how runny your chili is. If it is real runny drain through a strainer and into a bowl. Take a little of the juice and blend with flour and when you heat up stir back into chili. If you don't have excess liquid in chili, mix a little flour and water until smooth and blend back into chili as you reheat. Cook until it thickens.
