'Beef Chili with Coffee & Dark Chocolate' is a one-of-a-kind chili recipe from the My Life with Food blog that offers a completely different take on the classic comfort food.

While many staples of a traditional chili recipe are included in the ingredient list, such as cumin, chunks of beef, red kidney beans and chipotle peppers, the recipe also calls for a few unusual ingredients as well such as dark brown sugar, 70% dark chocolate and brewed coffee, which serves as a replacement for beef stock in this instance.

As My Life with Food describes: "chocolate hasn’t always been a sweet ingredient. The truth is, if we didn’t add any sugar ourselves, it’s not sweet at all... It’s bitter, it’s smoky."
