Chocolate Chili???

I tried out a new recipe tonight for chili.  I’ve heard of people putting chocolate in chili but I wasn’t convinced.  Apparently it gives it a smoothness and velvetiness.  Overall, it was really nice and you couldn’t taste the chocolate.  Unfortunately, I over-cocked the cloves, which is something I don’t know how to reverse.  I will definitely make it again but I will half the amount of cloves.  As suggested, I served it with warmed tortillas and sour-cream.

Here is the recipe:  It comes from one of my favourite Slow Cooker Books – Ultimate Slow Cooker by Sara Lewis, which I strongly recommend.  I use it all the time.  This is in no way a sponsored post.
