Chocolate Chili


I read about this recipe a ton of times and how amazing it was, but I was always very skeptical about the inclusion. Chocolate chili? But then I started reading about cocoa powder, and using it as a seasoning, and how it makes food more deep, like mole, than like candy like you would typically think. I loved it!

  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 lb. ground beef
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tbsp. ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp. unsweetened 100% cocoa
  • 1 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 6 oz. can tomato paste
  • 14.5 oz. fire-roasted, chopped tomatoes
  • 14.5 ounces broth (veggie/chicken/beef)
  • 1 c. water
  1. Heat a large, deep pot over medium/high heat
  2. Add coconut oil
  3. When melted, add onions, and cook for about 7 minutes, stirring every once in a while
  4. Add garlic and cook for about 30 seconds
  5. Crumble meat into pan and stir until combined. Cook until no longer pink
  6. In a separate bowl, add crushed oregano, chili powder, cumin, cocoa, allspice, and salt, and stir
  7. Add to pot and stir
  8. Add tomato paste and stir until well combined
  9. Add tomatoes, with juice, broth, and water. Stir well
  10. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer uncovered for at least 2 hours
I topped with avocado, and then the rest of the nights ate in a sweet potato bowl. LOVE!

Enjoy! Thanks The Clothes Make the Girl!
