DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the onions in the oil in a Dutch oven or heavy soup pot for 15 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the onions with the cumin, oregano, cinnamon, coriander, chili powder, pepper, salt, and garlic and stir. Cook - stirring constantly to make sure the spices don't stick and burn - for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Add the diced tomatoes and jalapenos, and chipotle peppers and bring the mixture to a boil, scraping up any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan and incorporating the bits into the sauce.
  • Stir in the tomato paste and beer (or water) until smooth.
  • Lower the heat, cover and let simmer, for 45 minutes.
  • Stir in the beans, and lime juice and simmer for an additional 15 minutes.
  • Add chocolate and stir until melted.
  • Serve immediately if desired but to enhance the flavor store in the refrigerator up to 3 days, transfer to a crockpot and cook on low for up to 4 hours (or just reheat if desired). If cooking in the crock pot longer than 4 hours, add 1/2 cup water prior to cooking and stir well.
  • Ladle into a bowl and serve with desired toppings.
