Why Beer?

The beer flavor is not so observable but it compliments the flavor of other spices and brings out intense flavor from ingredients. So adding beer is a good choice.

Is Chocolate or Cocoa a Good Option to Consider for Chili?

Adding a contrast always enhances and boosts the flavor. With its sweet and rich flavor, chocolate helps to improve the overall flavor by contrasting the spices. For a hint of bitterness, you can also add dark chocolate. Cocoa is also a viable option.

Too Much Tomato? No Worries!

If you feel like you have added more than needed tomatoes and it gives your child a lot of tangy flavors, you can add some sweet chocolate or cocoa powder. If you have some extra ingredients, you can also utilize them instead.

How to Enhance the Flavor of your Chili?

To further increase the flavor, you can add whatever spice you like. For example, you can add cinnamon. Cinnamon is a good option because it works well with the flavors of certain ingredients found in the chili such as cumin and tomatoes. You can also add coffee powder to the chili. For a bit of a sweetish flavor add honey. And as we have mentioned before, dark chocolate, sweet chocolate, and cocoa are also good options.
