This recipe has been lurking in my filing system forever as a cutting from some magazine or other! It looks like there are a lot of ingredients, but there’s nothing unusual to find. The chocolate gives this recipe authenticity. Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005.

    Had a difficult time deciding how to rate this one. I think my simmer was not sufficiently vigorous and as a result my final dish was far more soupy than intended. Also, for dietary reasons I replaced the chocolate with about 2 tablespoon of Duth processed cocoa. Nonetheless, the taste of the stew was just delicious and I could envision making it with and without making the corn topping. Topping was very good as well - very moist and quite delicate - not bread-y. (I replaced the sugar with Splenda by the way.) Thanks Caroline.
