After seeing my husband's Auntie Karolyn post VEGETARIAN CHILI on her brand spanking new blog foodjimoto.com last week, I just had to make a pot.
I just loved the addition of chocolate in chili.
It gives it such a unique flavor.
Deep, smoky, and spicy.
Give this recipe a try.
But one word of advice, DO NOT USE THE 3 TABLESPOONS OF CHILI POWDER AND 2 CHIPOTLE CHILES as the recipe calls for.
I only used 1 tablespoon of chili powder and no chipotles, and it turned out spicy.
And I love spicy foods!
I wasn't too crazy about the bread.
It tasted like it came straight out of a box.
Dry and boring.
For the toppings, I love to add texture and spice.
Red onions, diced jalapenos with seeds, avocado and cilantro.
It's been rainy and cold in Southern California, perfect weather for CHOCOLATE CHILI!!!
