Vegetarian Chili

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sunspinner

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.

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.
