Chili with Chocolate Ice Cream

January 29, 2019 5:00 AM

That's right. I saw this Fire and Ice Chili recipe from How Sweet Eats, and I was so intrigued by the fact that she put chocolate ice cream in her chili.

You can't tell in this photo, but I could not stop crying from that onion.

I actually looked for dark chocolate ice cream in three different grocery stores, but I couldn't find it until I went to Whole Foods. And then I spent a whole $9 (!!!) for a Haagen Dazs-sized thing of Jeni's ice cream, which is ridiculous.

Okay, but I gotta admit, Jeni makes pretty good ice cream.

Dropping a scoop of chocolate into the pot of chili
Yeah, a scoop of ice cream in a pot of chili is not the most eye-pleasing thing.

A very full pot of chili
It was thiiiiis close to overflowing.

This was a really interesting tasting chili. It was sweeter and less tomato-y than I'm used to, but I liked it. Not sure I'll ever make it again though, mostly because it took two hours, and that ice cream was stupid expensive.

But if I ever see it on sale, I'm totally trying the coffee flavor.
