    Cinnamon and chocolate add a great flavor to chili. You don’t need to add much to get the flavors either. Thanks for sharing this with us at the Let’s Get Real Friday Link Party. I hope you’ll join us again this week.

    Mole is one of the dishes that I would love to try, so thanks for sharing this. :) They say Mole is an acquired taste, so it’ll be interesting to try this one.

    Btw, thanks for linking to Let’s Get Real Party! :)
