Fruit-and-Nut Chili

Sweet peppers, fragrant garlic, and an aromatic blend of spices (including curry powder and cinnamon) make this chili flavorful. The addition of cocoa powder, almonds, and tart, crisp apples makes it uniquely enticing. Almonds, like all nuts, are susceptible to rancidity due to their high fat content. For optimal shelf life, store almonds in a air-tight container in the freezer, for 3-6 months.

My family loves this recipe! The first time I made it several years ago, my husband's first comment was, "this is delicious - you have to make this again!" One note though, we actually prefer vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream on top.
