Smokey Pumpin Chocolate Chilli

Ahh, ’tis the season for all things cozy and pumpkin flavoured. I think this chilli ticks both of those boxes to be honest, and I’m not mad about it. I know adding chocolate might sound weird, but it adds an extra depth of flavour and a nice zing, especially since I used the Grapefruit & Chia Chocolate from VGAN. Yes, this is sponsored, but I’m not lying when I say that their chocolates are my favourite. Of course you can use any chocolate you like in this, just make sure it is more on the bitter side, so dark chocolate is definitely better!
