This recipe really surprised me! It looked so unusual, with the chocolate and the spices, that I just had to try it, but I wasn't sure how much I'd like it. The first night, I thought it was edible but not great. My husband liked it but thought it was weird to put chili on spaghetti. Then the next morning I woke up craving it! (Must be the chocolate!) I had another helping and liked it better, although I still wasn't sure. Then we had it for dinner and I loved it! My husband had it with cheese sandwiches and liked that better than the spaghetti, although I'm sticking with the spaghetti and cheese. I do have a few minor complaints that dropped my star rating to 4. The chili seemed too thin originally; I wound up adding some cornstarch and simmering uncovered to let some of the water boil off. The chili powder is too strong for me. Next time I'll try cutting it in half and maybe increasing some of the other spices. I also think it's a bit of a pain to refrigerate overnight, but since I liked it so much better the next day, the refrigeration is probably worth it. Then again, maybe I just had to try it a few times to get used to it!
