    10. 10
      Notes: I usually decrease the chili powder slightly because my DH prefers things mild.
    11. 11
      We've always skipped the red onion and cilantro, but, it sounds interesting.
    12. 12
      I'm estimating the active and passive work times.

      Made this today using chicken stock. It was still good! I added chopped red onion and cilantro at the end and I think it made all the difference, esp. the red onion.

      I only had 1 lb of ground turkey, so I scaled the recipe back for that amount, except that I ended up using the whole can of tomatoes. I was nervous while it was cooking b/c I could really smell the cocoa at first, but it came out really well. Dh, who claims not to like chili or beans, had two bowls! I liked it better w/ the sour cream to cut the heat, but I don't think most people would find it that spicy. Thanks for a keeper!

      This chili is divine. I made a couple of changes. I cut the meat back to 1/2 lb and used ground pork instead of ground turkey. I also only used two cans of beans, one can of white and another can of "chili" beans. The flavor was really wonderful... very rich and dense with the cocoa powder, but not too spicy. This is my new favorite chili!
