Chili with Chipotle and Chocolate
Smoky chipotle chiles and earthy unsweetened chocolate add unexpected depth and richness to this hearty chili. You might recognize these ingredients from mole, a classic Mexican sauce. That's intended—this recipe draws from that sauce for its flavor inspiration. Don't be put off by the chocolate in the ingredient list, though. It's here to provide a rich, earthy base to the chili flavor. We suggest ground turkey because the chili's flavors are so potent, a fattier meat like ground beef might be too strong. But if you can't find turkey or don't prefer it, ground beef would be an acceptable substitute.
