Our family loves chili and this recipe with the cocoa and coke has a nice mole taste to it. It is quick to prepare and so easy.
- 1 lb lean ground beef, browned and drained
- 1 package dry onion soup mix
- 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
- 2 -3 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 can tomato paste
- 1 can Diet Coke
- Mix all ingredients in crock pot and cook on low for 6 hours.
This was a real pleasant suprise!! I added some garlic, onion and liquid smoke, doubled the recipe and took it to a pot luck. There was another chili there but it was hardly touched!! I don't know if it is the coke or cocoa but this sure was tasty. Would be great as a "sloppy joe". I'm making more for the freezer soon. Thank for this terific recipe Mellen2.
This was so easy and so good!! Even my husband, who hates chili, ate it and asked me to make it again!! I doubled the recipe, added two cans of red kidney beans, drained and rinsed.I used regular Coke instead of diet. I also added a jar of stewed tomatoes that we canned last fall (just cause I'm trying to use them up!) Hands down the best chili I have ever had! Will make this again and again!
I made this on Superbowl Sunday for the fellas. I doubled the recipe and added 2 cans of diced green chilli's, 1 can of diced tomatoes, 2 cloves of garlic, & 1 large can of pinto beans. I also replaced the ground beef with chicken breast ground in a food processor. It was great!! I will definately make it again
