I wanted to try this because of the chocolate...kinda like a mole's very good....though if you are not a fan of cayenne, you may want to decrease the chili powder in the recipe, there is alot of it. It also needs more time than the recipe calls for the flavors to blend and the water to boil off a bit. I am going to use ground sirloin next time..the ground round was too fatty.

Also, the recipe is supposed to be 6 servings/4 PTS(1 C servings)..which is really small. I am eating it in 4/6 PT servings.
