DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the dry beans, cover with water and simmer till tender. Drain the water and set aside. You can also use 2 cans of black beans.
  • Brown the onions and garlic in the olive oil. Add the meat and continue browning, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • In a small non-stick skillet toast the chile and cumin till fragrant – takes about 5 minutes. Do not skip this step as the toasting process brings out all the flavor of the spices.
  • Add the toasted spices to the meat and onions. Add the oregano and 2°C of the chicken stock and all the beans. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer for about 20 minutes or until you reach the consistency you like for the chili. Start with only 2°C of the stock and gradually add to reach the consistency you like. Right before serving add the cocoa and blend well. Do not heat over a slight simmer as the chocolate will become bitter.
  • Serve with the sour cream and Chevre that you have blended together. Make some jalapeno cornbread and you have a dynamite meal! This recipe can easily be doubled.
