From Weight Watchers "make it in minutes". We usually think of chocolate as a confection or dessert. In Mexico, however, chocolate is commonly used in savory dishes, such as chicken in mole sauce, to give added depth of flavor. A combination of cocoa powder and chocolate is used in this dish to achieve a similar result.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add garlic, onion, bell pepper, and jalapeno pepper; cook, stirring often, until the vegetables begin to soften, 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add beans, tomatoes, corn, chili powder, cocoa powder, oregano, salt, and black pepper.
  4. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring often to prevent scorching, until beginning to thicken slightly, about 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate, stirring until melted.

I also have the Make it in Minutes cookbook, and this is one of my favorites in it. It's a great lunch, and it freezes really well. As an aside, the cookbook's recommendation is to serve this with cornbread.

This recipe needed to be tweaked. I like all the vegetables but there is hardly any liquid so I had to add some of the juice from the tomatoes back in. Also it does not have enough flavor. It doesn't say how much salt to use but i used about a tsp and then added garlic salt as well. Also, although I can't quite put my finger on it, it's missing something.

Fantastic, I have made this heaps of times now and my family of husband and 3 kids love it. My brother knew I was making a vegetarian chili one night but didn't realise this was it.... thought it had meat in it. Tastes great!!!
