The Saturday Simmer: Soup, stew and chili recipes with chocolate or cocoa
For some, Valentine's Day means a Whitman chocolate sampler in the familiar yellow box, purchased at the local pharmacy. Others present the people they love with chocolate in savory main dishes, like this turkey and white bean chili with chocolate, from Kalyn's Kitchen. Sweet or savory, chocolate adds a bit of romance to any meal, and it should definitely be on the menu for Valentine's Day.
