Stir in chili powder and next 5 ingredients (through allspice); cook 1 minute. Add broth, beans, and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

So disappointing! I made this exactly as the recipe calls, but this dish fell flat. Neither my husband nor I wanted to eat beyond the first two bites. A waste of time and money. The chocolate did not mesh, the spaghetti was weird, and overall a poor combination of flavors, although I will admit it looked intriguing on paper.

I really like this version of chili for a different flair. since jennie-o ground turkey is in 20 oz pkgs, i used that with the 28 oz petite diced tomatoes and an extra can of northern beans….1 cup of broth, and doubled the spices, and chocolate. came out great. my family always wants elbow macaroni with any chili so i just make that. have already made this a few times in the past. i used to put 1/4-1/2 c kahlua in my spicier chili.

Delicious and easy! The house smells great, and the spices remind me of a one-dish spaghetti recipe my mother used to make. I didn't use the chocolate or the noodles this time, and omitted the raw onions on top. This recipe was good enough that I'm sure I'll make it again and try it with chocolate and spaghetti.

This was a great recipe. I have a picky eater and SHE even loved it. I raised an eyebrow when I saw that cinnomin and alspice was a part of the ingredients, but they really gave it a unique flavor. I served it over rice instead of noodles.
