Mexican Chili

Let me tell you a secret.  There is chocolate in this chili.

Oh yes.  You heard me. 

 
And it is healthy.
 
No need to feel bad about seconds right? Right.

** Mkendra’s notes:  
-I like to use ground turkey for the meat
-Depending on how you like the consistency of your chili you can add more beans. I have used all kinds, black, red, pinto, and I usually always add lentils.
