    I have already made this dish twice and everyone loves it! The second time I made it I added a little more chili powder and a little more cumin. Other than's perfect!  -  08 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    It was too mild for our family's taste so I doubled the chili powder and added some red pepper flakes. I used dark chocolate chips and really liked the suble taste the chocolate gave, life a mole. I'd definitely make it again. Very easy!  -  19 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was great! I like mild things, and my husband likes really spicy, so this worked well because as is, the recipe is mild, so we just add some extra spice for the hubster, and voila, perfection! Loved the chocolate mixed with the other savory flavors. It wasn't overpowering, but gave the chili a subtle smoothness. Great blend.  -  20 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
