Slow Cooker Chili with Chocolate Recipe

chili recipe

I needed some time to get some spring clean-up done, so to save some time, I decided on this Slow Cooker Chili with Chocolate Recipe. This is a simple recipe that doesn’t require a lot of prep time, and the slow cooking blends the flavors really well. I think this is the second chili dish I have had that has used chocolate as one of the ingredients, which doesn’t sound good in chili to me, but it’s very good. Give it a try, and enjoy.
