There's nothing better on a cold day than a hot bowl of chili to warm body and soul. Plus, serving chili is easy―all you need is the pot, a ladle, and a pile of bowls, and guests can serve themselves. This Mexican-flavored version uses spicy chorizo and chipotle chiles for heat, pinto and black beans for body, and a little cocoa powder for a surprising background flavor.
