    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.
