      1/2   oz           Unsweetened chocolate -- grate
                         Tomato juice as needed
    9       oz           Thick spaghetti -- cook;butter
   16       oz           Canned kidney beans -- heated
                         -and drained
    2                    Onions -- chopped
      3/4   lb           Cheddar cheese -- grated
   1.  Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large sillet. Heat
   to medium and add the meat, the first two chopped
   onions that appear first in the recipe,the garlic.
   Cook until Meat is browned but still soft. 2. Add
   tomato sauce, catsup, water and vinegar.  When mixture
   boils, add the rest of the salt,the remaining spices
   and herbs, the honey and chocolate. Adjust seasonings,
   adding more salt if it needs perking up, more cumin
   for a more strident chili flavor, more cinnamon and
   mace if you want it more aromatic, more cardamom for
   more band and more chocolate for more body. 3. Cover
   and simmer on very low heat for about 1 hour, stirring
   and tasting occasionaly, adding tomato juice if it is
   getting too dry. It should be a thick sauce. Discard
   bay leaf. 4. For 5 way chili (use small oval plate if
   available), layer spaghetti on the plate, top it with
   chili, then with a sparse layer of kidney beans & then
   choped, raw onions. Pat on the cheese while the chili
   is still hot and serve immediately, with oyster
   crackers on the side. You may, if desired, omit either
   the beans or onions, or both, for 3-way chili or 4-way
   chili. Serves 4 MMNorma Wrenn NPXR56B
