I made the most amazing Chilli earlier this week, if I do say so myself. I’d love to post the recipe but I can’t as I lifted it straight out Sarah Lewis’ 200 More Slow Cooker recipes. However, I think I’ve cracked her secret…Dark Chocolate and Dark Muscovado Sugar.
I know it sounds insane adding chocolate to chilli, you can’t taste it but it gives it a smooth velvety texture. I reckon you could add 25g of dark chocolate and 2 TBSP of Muscovado sugar to any chilli recipe.
We served ours on a bed of Basmati Rice with a huge dollop of sour cream. When I do it again, I’m going to serve it with some Tortilla Chips.

We always put chocolate in chilli. I read it once in a recipe book from Mexico. Defo a brilliant secret ingredient. I hadn’t considered the sugar though so may give that a go next time :)
It made it a lovely rich dark colour.
Chilli + chocolate = oh yes. Brilliant recipe. I’ve linked this to my Recipe Shed over at http://www.reluctanthousedad.com
