Directions

  1. In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion and garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Cook until softened, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Add tomato paste, chili powder, and cocoa powder. Cook, stirring, until mixture is fragrant, about 1 minute. Add beef, and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until no longer pink, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes (with their juice) and beans. Bring to a boil over high; reduce to a simmer, and cook until chili is slightly thickened, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve with toppings, if desired.

Made 1/2 the recipe for DH and I and served it over macaroni noodles with cheese on top. This has a great flavor with just a few seasonings. I did add about 1/4 cup tomato sauce because it was a little thick for our taste. Great chili, will make again! Made for Fall 2012 PAC.
