I like both your ideas, I'll have to buy a square of dark unsweetened and see what I think of the end result. chili sounds good right now

I was listening to a radio talk show and this lady [I think her name is Pam] was giving her recipe for chili con carne con chocolate so looked it up online. This is the first google on board, not hers, couldn't find that one but liked the looks of thing and love MC...

I just bookmarked that. I will try that, have most everything called for but still do need to buy the bittersweet chocolate. Gosh, I just hate having to buy chocolate don't you? NOT.
I do have the kind Caine talks about but that's not bittersweet as I recall, we shoppe at the same market I think. I also recall him having pineapple vinegar which I have too but that's another subject.

I've been putting s/s chocolate (Bakers squares) into all of my chili ever since I experimented with "Cincinatti style chili a few years back.

Like ErikC said, people comment on that "flavor" but can't quite put their finger on it. They usually keep guessing, and keep re-filling their bowls!!

I agree with unsweetened chocolate, and a teaspoon or two of instant coffee. You can't taste the coffee either.

I have to say, I added the chocolate to my last batch and didn't love it. Okay, I hated this batch. Normally it would be gone by now and it's not. I just didn't enjoy adding chocolate to my chili. Won't be doing it again for sure.

but at least you know what CINC, you tried, that's all you can do, no one is saying it's the perfect way to do chili, but you tried it, didn't like it, and so on. I give you props for trying it.
