Thanks for the credit. Technically, my original recipe ( http://www.food.com/recipe/eds-chicago-cocoa-chili-chocolate-chili-18414 ) 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
WHAT an interesting combination, Am NOW eating with elation, OK..usually hate when people do, but made some slight changes with what had on hand too! Skipped the tofu...not a fan, ok? Used red onion, tomato paste with pesto...orange, lemon, lime combo MADE MY DAY! Used 3 cans 4 bean mix, TRUE Also 3 cans crushed tomatoes with chilli and papkika too! Basically is same recipe! NEVER would have thought to combine chocolate with chilli...maybe is just me! THANKS! This recipe DOES rock!!
