      very hot/sweet chili that is perfect for everyone since you add what you like. i did the full deal, dh had his beanless, dd had hers over a hot dog. this is the perfect recipe for a family with different tastes, like mine. the chile is much darker in color due to the spices and cocoa, which add so much to the complex flavor. outstanding!
