This is a great recipe. I added 1/2 green pepper and substituted 1 more can of tomato sauce for the water. I served it with sour cream, cheddar cheese and green onions. There were no leftovers!

Delicious and easy to make. I used fresh chopped tomatoes and two bay leaves, in addition to the dark coco powder...the large jalepeno was added for subtle heat TIP: leave as one piece and do not open, this way the taste and not the heat is released from the pepper. Little ones may now enjoy this recipe too!
