Mole Style Chili

Last year in the spring, I went to Acapulco for spring break and developed a mole obsession of sorts, even though I still don't understand what it is. I thought it was a popular sauce in Mexico that always involves cocoa or chocolate, but it turns out that I'm mistaken because there are several varieties of the stuff. This mole style chili does involve cocoa. And coffee. And a heap ton of veggies. And it's both simple and delicious :) 

All you gotta do is brown a diced onion and some ground beef in oil. Throw in diced carrots, frozen corn, garlic, instant coffee, soy sauce, cumin, paprika, cinnamon, chipotle chili in adobo, bittersweet chocolate, water, and a can each of diced tomatoes and black beans. Ta da! You now have lunch for a week :)

Would I make this again? Yes, I've made a similar chili before that was awesome and this is a healthier version of that because of the plethora of veggies.
