Slow Cooker Chocolate Chili
One of my main goals in life is to find ways to include chocolate into my every day living. I have breakfast recipes that include chocolate, snacks, and now I am officially adding a slow cooker dinner (or lunch) recipe! There are many chocolate chili recipes out there. I found this one and adapted it to my liking. It’s delicious. The dark chocolate addition gives it a nice rich flavor. The whole family enjoyed it even though the kids were disappointed they could not taste the chocolate.
