6. Chocolate Chuck Wagon Chili

It is widely accepted that chili isn't something you would normally think to have added to chocolate, but we're about to change that for you. Adding chocolate chips to the pot gives it both extra flavor and a creamier texture. This one might take a little extra time, but have we ever steered you wrong when it comes to food? View the recipe HERE.
