Very delicious and fragrant. I used semi-sweet chocolate because I could not find bittersweet, and I think maybe I'd use more chocolate next time, but that's just cause I love chocolate. I placed it all in my crockpot and it cooked up great without intervention. A keeper for me, thank you!

We really enjoyed this! I didn't put in all the chipolte chilis and none of the jalapenos because my children. It made a huge amount, for us at least, LOL. I froze about half of for another meal. I cooked it in the slow cooker. We are looking forward to it again. Made for Snow Queen Comfort Cafe 2010

This was super yummy! I did crock pot for 4 hours on high and 2 on low. I used black beans and adzuki beans (both pre-cooked) and garbanzo beans (dried, which cooked perfectly in the time I used). I didn't have a jalapeño either so used three more chipotle chilis in adobe sauce instead and it was almost too spicy! I didn't have bittersweet chocolate on hand so used 1 Tbsp of unsweetened cocoa and it was (what I think and hope!) the perfect substitute. I used an oatmeal stout and it added a wonderful richness to what the chocolate started, I would definitely recommend a dark beer for this chili. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

This is very good chili. The taste reminded me of mole because of the chocolate. I did make a couple of changes in the ingredients. Only put in 2 Tbs of chili powder and used a poblano chili instead of jalapeno because that's all I had on hand and was too lazy to make a trip to the store. It would definitely have been more spicy using the ingredients as stated, but it was still plenty spicy. I also added a pound of ground turkey breast, just because I had some in the fridge, but the flavor of the turkey was overpowered by the other spices and chilies, so I don't recommend going to the expense of adding it. I cooked this in the crock pot for about 4 1/2 hours at high and then another 2 hours on low. The flavor does improve if made at least one day before. This recipe would be great for potlucks because it makes a ton!!
