  • Additional Information

    This is great with rice or baked potatoes. I never tell anyone there is chocolate in the dish until after they have eaten it and everyone is always surprised. I suggest you taste a little before you add the chocolate and you can taste the difference. Also if you add too much chilli the chocolate helps tone it down. Enjoy.
