Dark Chocolate

Since most of the chocolate we eat is sweetened, whether it’s a little or a lot, we naturally associate it pretty strongly with desserts. But there’s more to chocolate than baking and ice cream. Especially in the Latin American cultures that first developed cacao and left it unsweetened, plenty of more savory dishes can benefit from a little touch of chocolate sauce happiness.
