Chocolate Chili

Ingredients:

2 lbs. ground beef
garlic powder
onion powder
pepper
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. cinnamon
26 oz. tomato sauce
24 oz. mild salsa
2 cans of beans (I used kidney and black beans)
You can add canned tomatoes
4 cups of beef broth

Add ground beef to a large pan. Season with salt and pepper. Brown until done.

When your hamburger is done, drain the grease. Add all the rest of the ingredients to the crock pot and stir. For the garlic and onion powder, I just sprinkle some over the top of the chili.

Cover and let cook about six hours. I usually start out on high for a couple of hours and then turn it down to low. Cook until the ground beef is tender, about 6 to 8 hours.

You can add corn or peppers. If you don’t have beef broth, use chicken broth. Top with sour cream, cheese and crackers.
It’s pretty versatile.  Enjoy!
