    Moorish. The cacao was something I never would have thought of. Add a half a teaspoon of cinnamon & your ballin.

    Absolutely fabulous! Everyone loves it! I added both onion powder and garlic powder while browning the meat to give it a bit of flavor and about a 1/4 of a cup more of broth.

    My husband and I really enjoyed this Slow Cooker Chili entree. For the beans I used light red kidney beans and white kidney beans. I also used a large can of medium diced chilies, instead of the diced tomatoes w/chilies. For the meat, I used ground chicken and Italian turkey sausage. I did not add ground coriander since I didn't have it, but I now have it on my grocery list, since I will be making this again!

    Spicy like we like it! I also added green peppers, diced carrots and sweet corn to one batch and was a big hit too. so now we have the original recipe and a bonus batch. Dipped fresh baked rolls into it and another time res quinoa tortilla chips were delicious as well

    Chili was great. Me and my family had it with rice and cornbread. Also the next day with our bake potatoes. I added a little bit of season salt for a better taste.

    Great chili (and I make many). This one is a winner. Tangy, hearty, complex... in a good way. A definite one to try.

    Chili was super good. Our grocery store only has the 19oz cans of kindney beans so my husband found there was too many beans so next time I will use one can. We subsituted a can of pasta sauce for 3 cans of tomato sauce and it still came out good. Used the cocoa powder and couldn't taste it! Making this a staple.

    Made it twice so far, substituted dill for the coriander. One batch I kicked up with the hot/habanero diced tomato/chiles and a Carolina Reaper deseeded. Both turned out excellent! Also, instead of water or broth, I used coffee.
