Going to try this with some smoked brisket that been in freezer for a while. Is that brown sugar next to the white?
Damn , had a late night last night . I read that as " unsweetened cola " I looked at the ingredient pic , and was thinking wonder where he gets that dried cola ? I sat to close to the cooler and watched some John Wayne movies last night .Cocoa adds a nice flavor profile.

Thanks Stuart. And agree on the deeper complexity. I love it in chiliNot sure how I missed this one.
But yeah, adding the cocoa powder gives chili a deeper more complex flavor.
I guess that is one way to describe it.
And the chili does not taste like chocolate.
Good looking chili Jake.
thanks will try it that way sounds like a plan,I just dump a can of beans in the blender and turn them into a liquid. Add a little water or beef stock if necessary to thin. Seasoned black beans are my preference, but Bushes has a line of flavored beans, any one of which will work.
I tried refried beans once in the chili. Nope. Did not work.
