chocolate and chiles
This robust chili has sweetness from the corn and cinnamon, spice from the chiles, and a depth of flavor from the cocoa. The short ribs fall apart with a fork and add extra body to the chili (just make sure to trim them well before you start cooking).  Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Chili.
