  1. In a large, heavy pot or a large enameled cast-iron casserole dish, set over medium-high heat, heat the oil.
  2. Add the ground turkey and cook, breaking the turkey with a wooden spoon and stirring, until browned, about 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Add the onions and zucchini to the pot and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent, about 6-8 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic, chili, cumin, oregano, salt, and black pepper and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  5. Add the turkey, tomatoes with the liquid, beans and chocolate, stir until chocolate melts. Simmer the chili over low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Serve the garnishes in individual bowls as a toppings bar, or serve individually, topping each bowl with a dollop of sour cream, sprinkle of cheese and scallions. Kids can crumble tortilla chips on top.

This chili is sooooo goood. My kids were scared off by the name but once it was cooking they were all coming over and asking what smelled so good. The only changes I made to the recipe was to add a little cilantro to the sauce while it was simmering and I sprinkled the turkey with cumin and onion powder while it was browning. The only problem with this recipe was there was no leftovers since everyone went back for seconds!

We used the base of this recipe to make a veggie chili. It was good, but I was disappointed to not taste the chocolate at all. Also, 3 cans of tomatoes was overkill (and I'm a tomato lover).

This was good - although not as chocolaty tasting as I hoped. I didn't have salt-free diced tomatoes so I used the Italian stewed tomatoes I had in the Pantry. I would definitely make this again but would add a bit more chocolate!

I don't really like Chili - but we had a Valetine's Banquet at my church and we were supposed to bring an entree with chocolate in it, and this was all I could find that looked remotely edible. It is the BEST chili I've ever tasted and now it is the only chili I make - and I make it alot! :) Very, very, very good! I'd give it 10 stars if I could. The only thing I change (because I don't like 'soupy' chili) is I DRAIN the tomatoes - pressing as much liquid out of them as I can - and discard the liquid.

I have made this recipe many times for friends and family and everybody says this is the best chili they've ever had, not the best turkey chili, but the best chili period. Highly recommended.

Very good! I used only two cans of tomatoes and no beans. This made for a very creamy, thick chili. I loved the unique flavor.

A delicious and healthy recipes! I followed the recipe to a "t" an it was great, not too spicy which I like. You really can't taste the chocolate which I like too.

My daughter, who doesn't like chili LOVED this and my son did too. Plus the health benefits of using turkey are a plus as well!
