My Veggie Chili with Chocolate.

This is probably my favorite January dish. Serve it on its own or with some rice or a baked potato and some grated cheese and sour cream.
May i recommend you make a little extra it gets better with age.
Serves 4
Fry 1 red onion finely chopped, 2 cloves of garlic,2 long red peppers finely sliced, add 1 tin of red kidney beans, half a teaspoon of chili powder,half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper, a quarter of a small bar of bornville chocolate, one tin of tomatoes, 2 heaped tablespoons of tomato puree, 2 large handfuls of chestnut mushrooms sliced. Simmer on a low heat for 25 mins adding some vegetable stock to keep the liquid if needed. Then add 3 large handfuls of fresh spinach and cook for a further five minutes. Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley.
