    Vicki Q's Note:

    This is rich & satisfying, and can be as varied as the side dishes served with it. Have plenty of warm tortillas on hand, along with rice, beans, diced onion, shredded cheese, and/or sour cream. This feeds a crowd, or is great to freeze for another yummy meal or two.

      I made this chili today. It was very good. Sounded a little strange with the peanut butter and chocolate, but my whole family liked it a lot. My personal preference is chili made from chili grind ground meat, but I froze these leftovers to use in soft tacos. This chili recipe will make fantastic soft tacos or enchilada filling. I made this in the crockpot as the recipe advised and it came out perfect. I added an extra onion, a little less chili peppers because I didn't have all of them called for (I added a little extra seasoning to make up the difference), but I basically followed the recipe. Was a cinch to make. It does make a lot. It filled my 6 qt crockpot about 3/4ths full. Good recipe.
