  • 1/2 Teaspoon  cinnamon
  •  Dash of  cayenne
  •   Salt, to taste

You won't miss the meat in this dish, and that's because it's packed with three different types of beans, corn, and bell pepper to make it extra hearty. A hint of super-dark chocolate gives it the depth it would lose from the lack of meat. 


In a large heavy pot, sauté the onion and pepper with 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the other ingredients and the water. Cover and let the chili simmer on medium low, stirring occasionally for 45 minutes.
