Stir in Chocolate
The ultimate secret ingredient for intensifying flavours for chili enthusiasts: Chocolate. Adding a bit of dark or bittersweet chocolate to your simmering pot of chili is a game-changer. The chocolate doesn't make the chili sweet; instead, it brings out the flavours of chilies and spices, creating a harmonious balance. Cocoa powder works too!
Whether you choose chunks of dark chocolate or a sprinkle of cocoa powder, the result is a complex and luxurious chili that tantalizes the taste buds. Your guests will be left wondering about the magical ingredient that raised the bar on your chili-making skills.
Top with Fixings
It's time to take the customization up a notch with a plethora of toppings. Set up a chili bar with options like tortilla chips, grated sharp cheddar, sour cream, cornbread, salsa, guacamole, hot peppers, and lime wedges. Let your guests unleash their creativity as they pile on their favourite toppings.
The crunchy texture of tortilla chips contrasts with the creamy goodness of sour cream, while the heat from hot peppers and the freshness of lime wedges cut through the richness of the chili. With endless topping possibilities, each bowl becomes a personalized masterpiece.
