  • Reviews

  • “This is not my favorite chili, but that is probably a personal taste preference.I would like a sweeter chili, my apples were granny smith, so rather tart.I wasn’t terribly fond of the slight bitterness from the curry either.I did not know how much tomato sauce to use (what size can) so I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes instead.The chocolate made it smooth.I would also like to add a bit of salt.”

  • “I was making my own big pot of chili surfing through different recipes when I came across yours.I added the cocoa powder to mine and instead of an apple added 2 cups of applesauce as I am making much more than 4 servings.Fabulous additions.Thank you for the creative ideas!!:)”
