Great chili recipe, love the addition of the unsweetened chocolate. I more or less halved the recipe and still got a pretty big pot of chili. Cut the chili powder back as I only had chipotle powder on hand and it's really hot. And ended up using TVP instead of bulgur as suggested. Nice easy dish to prepare and was great topped with some tofutti sour 'cream'.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook, stirring for a few minutes, until the onions have wilted. Add the bell peppers, jalapeno, chili powder, and cumin, and cook, stirring, for 3-5 minutes longer, until the peppers have softened.
  2. Add the stock or water, bulgur (if using), grated chocolate, tomatoes, and beans. Bring to a boil, lower heat, and simmer gently for 25 minutes. Add the corn (and TVP, if using), stir, and cook 5 minutes longer.
  3. Serve with chopped red onion for garnish.
