THE INGREDIENTS THAT ARE STATED IN THIS RECIPE WOULD NOT RENDER ANY "SPICE" OF "CHILI" FLAVOR. I HAVE USED COCOA POWDER IN MY CHILI RECIPE ALONG WITH 1 BTL OF DOS EQUIS (MEXICAN BEER) BAY LEAF - CHILI POWDER, CUMIN POWDER, GARLIC, ONION, AND SALT & PEPPER. I DO, AGREE, THAT THE COCOA ADDS A DIMENSION OF FLAVOR TO THIS RECIPE. BUT, IT LACKS THE MELDING OF SPICES THAT NEED TO SIMMER FOR SOME TIME TO GENERATE THE AUTHENTIC FLAVOR OF A GOOD MEXICAN CHILI.

I thought this chili was great!!! The chocolate was the best idea ever!! I had such wonderful comments on it!!! Everyone should try this one, it was amazing!! Although I do recommend using chili beans and black beans not just chili tomatoes. Thanks Kraft it was perfect!!!

chocolate and chili go great together. i know a lot of people that make chili this way. i think that spices should be added to however the individual likes. not everyone will enjoy this. i have a husband and kids who dont tend to always go for spices. they loved this the way it is

Although I haven't tried it yet, I would have to agree that this recipe does sound rather bland... I will definetely add some spices to it. And to those of you who are stuck on the chocolate...have you ever TRIED adding chocolate to chili? I have tried it in the past with cocoa powder and it was great! It's nothing like melting a chocolate bar on top of your bowl of chili...using unsweetened, it adds a richness and zing that will suprise you!! I will probably stick to using cocoa powder though...

I thought this sounded like a really interesting thing to try...adding chocolate. Perhaps it would turn out better using cocoa powder, or by melting chocalate first then adding it along with some more spices, as others have suggested. The point I'd like to make is that, people should use this forum to add their ideas to recipes, not to put them down. If your chili is better thats great, keep making it and tell us how, but you dont need make rude comments!

Chocolate and Chili just won't do.

This is definitely "Yankee" chili. I moved to Texas from up north, and after having my chili made fun of, have been "educated" on the art of making chili. Take away the beans, add lots of chili powder, more meat, some ground cumin, garlic, onions, some diced tomatoes and green chilis (aka ro-tel); the chocolate is debatable. Maybe call it "bean soup".

I will stick to my authentic recipe, with meat, beans, tomatoes, and lots of chili powder, not chocolate!

I like the idea of trying chocolate in chili. But, the rest of the ingredient list is really lacking to be considered a good chili. So, I think I'll stick to my recipe and try it with the added chocolate.

Ugh, with no spices other than the chocolate (which does add punch), this recipe doesn't have much appeal. Put in some flavor - add some cumin, a good chili powder, a little allspice, heck even a beer into this. I understand quick, but believe me, it wouldn't take that much more time. Where's the salt?
