As you know or can probably tell from this blog, I'm a fan of chili. I usually turn to Rachael Ray for chili recipes but wanted to try this recipe out for a while. There are a lot of flavors that I was surprised for a chili recipe (i.e., cocoa powder) but I was very pleased with the hearty meal.
The chili simmers for a while allowing the cocoa powder and spices to really give the meat flavor. I was pleased with this recipe and will turn to it in the future. The only thing I did differently from the recipe is substituting the bacon for turkey bacon and the pinto beans for black beans.
