Chocolate Apple Chili

My chili is not from Spain. My chili is not made with meat. My chili does not contain an actual chili pepper or meat, but i assure you, my chili is chili. I begin with Gimme Lean Sausage, browned, and add my super secret spice mixture that makes my chili so addictive (William's Original). I saute an onion, bell peppers of various colors, and an apple. I prefer a Braeburn, but Gala will do fine. All the while, I add a bunch of beans, fire roasted tomatoes, Chili Fixens Rotel, brown sugar and additional spices to taste. I usually add about a table spoon of cocoa powder to the pot, but I only had a bit of a dark chocolate bar in the fridge, so i chopped it up and chucked it in.

The chili was great at first bowl, but the next day, when the flavors deepened and the spices matured, it was like a kung fu kick of awesome in the mouth. Enjoy the pics, but if you have the means to attempt a recreation of my delicious Chocolate Apple Chili, then i dare you. I double dog dare you.
