2 tsp (10 mL) ground cumin (or less, if you don't like the flavour)
¼ tsp (1 mL) cayenne pepper(or less, or more, or none)
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
2 19 oz (540 mL) cans red kidney beans, drained
1 oz (28 g) square unsweetened chocolate
1 tbsp (15 mL) sugar
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the chicken with the onions and garlic for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to break up any clumps. Add the canned tomatoes (with all the juice), the chili powder, cumin, cayenne and salt, and simmer for about 20 minutes, mashing the tomatoes with a wooden spoon to break them up. Stir in the beans, then, with great fanfare, have your child toss in the square of chocolate and the sugar. Cook, stirring, for another 20 minutes.
