Put a twist on old school chilli with a little bit of chocolate

Top Review by PaulaG

My rating is based on the wonderful depth of flavors that this dish has. I did add 1 lb of ground beef to the recipe and got 6 nice servings. The bell pepper was the green variety as that is what I had on hand. The chili did simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes.

  2. Add the tinned tomatoes and season well.
  3. Turn the heat up until simmering and add the black beans and chocolate and stir in well.
  4. Cook for around 10 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.
