How to make it
- In a skillet, saute the peppers, onion and garlic in the oil. When the onions are translucent, sprinkle the cocoa and cayenne over the whole thing and warm slightly. Remove this to a large cooking pot, retaining as much of the oil in the skillet as possible.
- Saute and mash the dark red kidney beans in the skillet, on low heat, so as not to burn them.
- Stir in the tomatoes, additional beans and broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and allow the chili to simmer, uncovered, for about 30 minutes. If it seems too dry, add a bit more Vegetable broth to keep it moist, but not soupy.
- Check the seasoning, adding powdered kelp and black pepper only as needed, and add the refried beans. Simmer 10 more minutes.
- Remove from the heat and allow the chili to cool COMPLETELY.
- When ready to serve, reheat slowly, stirring often.
- Top each serving with sour cream, up to 2 tablespoons shredded cheese and up to 2 tablespoons green onion.
