    Wonderful chili! Slightly sweet in taste and not spicy even with the chili powder! Added a dash of tiger sauce additionally! Let simmer on low for 9ish hours over the day added beans last hour!

    Great flavor, but a tad watery...might cut the water amount to 1 cup...

    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!

    Very good, I need to add a little more red pepper and a bell pepper.

    It was very good tasty. I added more chili powder, and (yes I know it’s technically not chili with beans) but I added a large can of pinto beans. Came out fantastic

    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.

    So delicious and easy to make! I like to add habaneros and cayenne pepper to add some spice.
