My own chili which came from my mother’s recipe archive is my favorite chili. This however makes an excellent second. Being vegetarian makes it an even better option for those weeks when meat is not in the budget. It just had this great smokey deep flavor that made you want more. It didn’t rely on spicy heat to make it a good chili, but on it’s excellent blend of flavors. My children were intrigued that it had chocolate syrup in it. We use cocoa powder in our regular chili, but chocolate syrup is for ice cream!
