Chocolate Chili

Chocolate in chili?  I have no idea why...but I tried it because the reviews of this recipe were all positive and a lot of them claimed it was the best chili they ever had.  I adapted this recipe from The Clothes Make the Girl.  This is amazingly, delicious and bean free chili...a must try recipe!  You can make this in a slow cooker or stove top.  -Kristin

2 Tablespoons coconut or olive oil
1 large onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 pounds ground beef or turkey or a combination of both
1 teaspoon oregano
1 1/2 -  2 Tablespoons chili powder
2 Tablespoons cumin
1 1/2 teaspoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
28 oz. can crushed or petite diced tomatoes
16 oz. beef or chicken broth
1 cup water
3-5 potatoes, peeled and diced small (optional)
  • Heat oil and sauté onion until it is translucent.
  • Add garlic and sauté a minute.
  • Add meat and cook completely.  Drain grease.
  • Add remaining ingredients and either simmer covered on the stove top for 2 hours or put in the slow cooker and cook on low until potatoes are done. (6-8 hours)
