Melissa Joulwan’s Chocolate Chili

Well Fed author Melissa Joulwan shares her recipe for chocolate chili…

In sixth-grade English, our class read a story about a Native American tribe in the Southwest. I’ve forgotten all but one fascinating detail of that story: The family ate meat cooked with chocolate. Thanks to my dad’s rule that we must at least try everything once, I ate a lot of weird stuff as a kid – raw lamb in kibbeh, sweetbreads, capers – but this was something I simply couldn’t fathom. Chocolate! With meat! Now, I’m a sucker for anything that’s sweetly savory, and every time I reach for the cocoa, I smile at the memory of 11-year-old-me. This chili is spicy, but not hot. Reminiscent of mole, the flavors are rich, mellow, and deep.
