There but for the grace of God

N: "We're having people over to my place. I'm making a big pot of chili con c---."

Lunchboy thought she'd said chili con carne or chili con queso. But what she'd actually said was chili con cocoa.

Specifically, tofu chili with a tablespoon of cocoa powder and 6 cups of melted Hershey's kisses.

I begged off the dinner, pleading exhaustion. Lunchboy went, however, and reported back that chili and chocolate are two dishes that should never, ever be combined-- information he shared after he got out of the bathroom.

Take that, peanut butter bacon bread.

actually... if you just add like 1/4 cup of dark chocolate to your chili recipe it makes it so much more rich and complex. same for the store bought enchilada sauce, add a few handfuls of slivered almonds, and maybe a small handful of chocolate. makes it more like mole (mo-lay... not mohl).

I think the problem isn't the chocolate as much as it is the TOFU CHILI.
