    Cindy Starke's Note:

    This is from Art Smith's cookbook, "Kitchenlife." Great chili, and I highly recommend the book. This chili freezes beautifully - one recipe fills two gallon size freezer bags.

      I used this for the base of my chili, only I added a small caln of tomatoe paste and some honey to take the bite out of the tomatoes. I liked the chocolate added at the end. It gave it a rich color and flavor.

      Very good chilli. My first time using chuck roast for the meat I'll never use ground beef again. I used black beans and chilli beans in mine. I also add celery to it I chopped the onions and celery very fine but otherwise it was the same recipe.
