One of the great things about chili is all the interesting ingredients that different people put in it. This is a delicious chili that I found in a garage sale cookbook that was falling apart. I saved the recipes that looked good to me and this was one of them. Super good!

Made for 2008 All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag. This was awesome chili and because it was so thick we thought it would make a great filling for tacos, burritos, or enchiladas. This was the first time that I"ve ever used chocolate in a chili recipe or any other entree for that matter and I have to say it tasted pretty good. This recipe is easily halved. Thanks for posting this Recipe Junkie! Updated 1/13/09 to add stars - forgot to add them the first time. Sorry Recipe Junkie!
This was fabulous. I've never used chocolate in savoury dishes before and it was fantastic. Thank you!
