chocolate chili

Recipe from Stacy:


Chocolate Chili


1 lb ground beef

1 lb ground pork

1 large onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 cans (28oz) diced tomatoes, undrained

2 cans chili beans (spicy is good), undrained

4 tbsp chili powder

4 tbsp grated unsweetened chocolate

3 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp hot pepper sauce of your choice


Brown ground meat, onion and garlic in large stockpot. If it creates a lot of fat, drain off most of it, if not, screw it, adds more flavor.


Add everything else. Mix well and bring to a simmer. Cook for at least an hour to let all the beautiful flavors combine. You can cook it longer if you're a flaming masochist, but I'd eat it at this point, with some sweet cornbread.


I always find seasonings need adjusting near the end of cooking time. Add more salt/pepper/chocolate as desired.



I added some Rooster Sauce, which I basically add to everything. Don't be put off by the combination of chocolate and chili. The chocolate has amazing, subtle flavors that blend well with the spices. It's more like a chili mole.


Yes, we need new dishes.
