    Chef Jean Louise's Note:

    This recipe has evolved over a number of years from a chili recipe that I think my Mom (Chef PaulaG) got from a *Make a Mix* cookbook. It takes a while to prepare, but I think it's well worth it. It works in the slow-cooker (if you have a big one). You can substitute leftover pulled pork for the ground meat for a tasty variation. I usually serve it over mac and cheese with cornbread. You can freeze this in portions if you are a once-a-month cook.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine all of the beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce, baking chocolate and stout in a very large stew pot and set them to simmer over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Combine all of the dry ingredients (flour through cayenne pepper) in a small dish, mixing well.
    3. 3
      Brown the ground beef with the seasoning mix, drain and add to the pot.
    4. 4
      Saute the peppers, onion and garlic in the pan used to brown the meat over medium heat until onion is translucent and the peppers just begin to brown around the edges, add to the pot.
    5. 5
      Simmer the chili over low heat for at least an hour before serving, the longer the better.

      This chili packs lots of flavor. It makes a large quanity making it perfect for an informal get-together or if for a smaller family it freezes well. This was made for Christmas Eve with family and served topped with grated sharp cheddar. Great recipe!

      This recipe is perfect and one that I have been making for years. The only addition I would have is a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. Wonderful chili recipe. Thanks!

      This one is a keeper!..This is a real good Chili! I added 1 Habanero from the garden and used one less can of beans to suit my taste but I'm sure the original recipe would have been great. Thanks!! Jason.
