Trudy's Chili


This is more like a soup than a thick chili. We serve it every Halloween at our house.
Helpful Hints: The chocolate can be anything you have on hand. For example--a handful of chocolate chips, a square of a candy bar; I've even used Tootsie Rolls.
Nothing has to be exact in this recipe. Just toss it together--it always turns out to be delicious!
It makes a lot. Half can be frozen for later.
