Chili is a hearty dish I love experimenting with. This meatless version I created is low in fat, but high in flavor. Everyone tries to guess the secret ingredient…no one ever thinks it's coffee. —Jess Apfe, Berkeley, California

"I followed this recipe exactly as written and the chili turned out extremely bitter. I had to add some more salt and some honey to it to make it edible. I think the chocolate & the coffee together is just too bitter and the kidney & black beans make it very bland also."

"I made this for lunch today, and it was VERY GOOD. You really don't miss the meat. I've been trying healthy meals for my husband who just had a heart attack. Cutting back on meat and sweets, as he's also a diabetic."

"I agree with theeeyoreguy. I added a pumpkin and sour cream topper to mine and it was great. Who knew?"
