2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder

Several dashes bottled hot pepper sauce

Does anyone have any recipes that don't contain Chocolate? I don't really care for chocolate chilis. My mother makes a very good one with chicken or turkey and absolutely no chocolate, but it's like trying to squeeze orange juice from a rock trying to get her to give me any recipes.
