Chocolate Chili

After many an experiment, the world's best veggie chili has been created in my tiny French kitchen. So good, in fact, that I can't not share what I've learned with the world. If you're in the mood for a dark, thick, zesty and healthy chili that will frankly blow your socks off, follow these simple instructions:

1) chop your veggies: half a zucchini, 1 large tomato, 1 yellow onion, a pile of mushrooms, 1/2 red bell pepper and 1/2 green bell pepper, 2 cloves garlic

2) toss em all in a big pan or wok with olive oil and saute till cooked.

3) pile them into a big pot with a can of kidney beans + juice from the can

4) if you want meat, (totally not necessary) save some veggies in the pan and saute some ground beef with em- then add to pot.

5) THE SECRET INGREDIENTS: add a heaping table spoon of unsweetened cacao and a can of beer to the pot. (seriously)

6) Half a can of tomato puree

7) Spices: a butt-load of cumin and oregeno, a pinch of paprika, pepper, shallot, a dash of red cayenne pepper, and half a cube of beef bouillon.

8) Now stir it up, then let it simmer for 45 min to 1 hour.

9) Impress the heck out of your friends and family.
