"Chocolate and chili are a classic combination- and Chocolate Brownie SuperFood Mix adds just the right amount of cocoa, plus a boost of nutrients to this hearty, veggie-loaded chili. I always add a bit of chocolate to my chili to deepen the flavor, which is why I thought adding the Chocolate Brownie SuperFood Mix would be a great addition- and it was!”
