Spicy Chocolate Chili

Hi there, Rachel here again from {i love} my disorganized life. I am so excited that the weather is finally starting to cool off here in Southern Arizona. I love spending quiet afternoons baking, drinking hot cocoa, reading and watching movies. I also love a good pot of stew or chili, so when I saw this recipe from the Mast Brothers, I knew I had to try it.

Spicy Chocolate Chili

Spicy Chocolate Chili blends the comforting taste of grandma’s chili and the rich flavor of cocoa. It’s a perfect mix.
