  1. I'm going to try your crock pot bean chili. I've been thinking of using my crock pot more and that sounds good. What is "unsweetened chocolate powder"? Is that the same thing as unsweetened cocoa? I've never seen that ingred. added to a chili recipe - should be interesting.

  2. just stopping by to say hi :) I am going to have to look for a recipe for lentil tacos, that sounds so good. I love lentils.

    Hope you have a wonderful, blessed and productive week and find lots of time to rest! :)

    hugs and blessings,

  3. Teri -- I am glad you are trying to use crockpot more---me too! Especially since it is cooler weather and easy to use! I am not sure about the cocoa--I have not tried this recipe before (a new one to me). However, I am going to use unsweetened cocoa or I may skip this.

    Michele-- Here is the recipe I use for Lentil Tacos. It is really yummy and fairly easy. Check out my Hints at the end of the recipe.
