    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.
