DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, combine the first 9 ingredients; set aside.
  • In a large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add in ground beef; cook until meat is browned, breaking up into small crumbles with a wooden spoon.
  • When the beef is browned, add in onion, garlic, spice mix; stir/saute 1 minute.
  • Add in tomato sauce, water, BBQ sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, chocolate, and bay leaves.
  • Bring mixture to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
  • Simmer, uncovered, for 1 hour (it should look more like a thick sauce than the chili most people are used to).
  • Remove bay leaves.
  • To serve five-way: distribute spaghetti among 8 bowls; spoon chili over spaghetti.
  • Top chili with cheddar cheese, onion, and kidney beans.
