I really enjoyed this chili. Not too spicy, yet a touch of sweet seasoning added.

Next time I'll use a dash of ground cloves instead of 1/8 tsp. The clove flavor dominated all else. Otherwise a very good recipe.

Delicious! I was a little leery of the cocoa and all the spices, but I prepared it just as posted and it was great. The long simmering period helps to mellow the spices.
