The cardamom and cocoa really gives this chili a wonderful, hidden flavor. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.

We loved this Chili! I loved all the spices and the cocoa paired so well with them. I will definitely make this recipe again. Thanks Judy~ Jude for a recipe I will gladly make again and again. In loving memory.... Cheryl
