Thanks for the credit. Technically, my original recipe ( ) is vegetarian if you just use frozen soy crumbles (check your freezer aisle) instead of meat.

i followed the recipe just so except i didnt put tofu in. i subbed it for a can of hominy.but this just didnt work for me. it seemed really pretty bland and nothing special. i tried adding a few different spices and things and finally ended with something that was ok but i didnt win the cookoff for sure. it was a lot of work too but it seemed like it would be good and the chocolate was cool and different so i was willing to try. but i guess it just wasnt for me. oh well i'm glad other love it so. thanks
