i really liked it. you end up with a pretty bold flavor and i think thats where the chocolate chips come in.

Very good, not sure I’ll put the vinegar in next time. Maybe less. Easy peasy, I added chopped jalapeño (most of the seeds removed), chopped red bell pepper, bay leaf, and dried basil. Will use this recipe again!

Tasted good, but the cinnamon didn't do anything for me. Unclear about the chocolate chips too. Also added more beans.

This may sound a bit weird, but adding 1/2 tbsp of fish sauce; it rounds out the flavors nicely, especially the savory ones. I'd recommend using a tbsp of cocoa power, plus 1/2 - 3/4 (i.e., to taste) tbsp brown sugar rather than the chocolate chips as the cocoa and brown sugar aren't processed like most chips.

Looks a lot like the chili I make. Sounds weird but try to add a very little bit of "crab boil". It adds a small amount of heat and tastes great!

Had to make it w/o onions, so used vegetable broth to flavor instead of water. Ended up pretty good.

It was good, but not a “Wow!” one for us. It smelled delicious and tasted good. Definitely had a bit of heat, but even my picky 10 year old enjoyed it.

I used ground chicken. It turned out well. The cinnamon and cumin gave it a nice flavor.

Really good and easy! Although, I tweaked it by putting in some sinew and tendon and cooking it down with the canned tomato and beans (I use dried not canned).

Great! Loved the hint of chocolate and cinnamon. 👍🏼
