    Chili was great. Me and my family had it with rice and cornbread. Also the next day with our bake potatoes. I added a little bit of season salt for a better taste.

    Great chili (and I make many). This one is a winner. Tangy, hearty, complex... in a good way. A definite one to try.

    Chili was super good. Our grocery store only has the 19oz cans of kindney beans so my husband found there was too many beans so next time I will use one can. We subsituted a can of pasta sauce for 3 cans of tomato sauce and it still came out good. Used the cocoa powder and couldn't taste it! Making this a staple.

    Made it twice so far, substituted dill for the coriander. One batch I kicked up with the hot/habanero diced tomato/chiles and a Carolina Reaper deseeded. Both turned out excellent! Also, instead of water or broth, I used coffee.

    Wonderful flavor! I omitted the beef broth since my family likes thicker chili. They loved it! A family keeper for sure!
