Can't have chili without the beans
November 30, 2015 2:25pm CST
So, I kind of planned to make Cincinnati chili sometime this week. Made a list, went shopping. Forgot the unsweetened chocolate. See what good a shopping list does ya? Fortunately mom has some unsweetened chocolate on hand. I'll just borrow that. All set. right? Nope. Forgot the kidney beans too. Unfortunately mom doesn't have those either. For a minute I thought it might just be okay. This particular chili uses spaghetti noodles. But then it would just be spaghetti with a spicy, chocolaty meat sauce. Nope. I can't do it.

You have me curious on your chili. (I'm making some today.) I have included chunks of cooked yam in chili and have left out the meat. I've put in black beans besides the kidney beans but chocolate and spaghetti noodles? Is the chocolate kind of like making a mole sauce??

I've never had mole sauce before so not sure on that. Here is a link to the recipe if you want to have a look.
