“A delicious rich chili with a depth of flavor like no other. Excellent for chili dogs or just by itself.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground beef, rinse, drain well add back to pan.
  2. Add the half can of tomato paste and a little bit of the water to help thin it out.
  3. Add chili, onion, garlic powders to taste, probably about a teaspoon of each and about a tablespoon of the cinnamon. salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Add about 3 or 4 tablespoons of brown sugar, I like it a little sweeter so use less if you don't.
  5. Add the dark chocolate and stir until it melts.
  6. Add more water to thin the chili, some will evaporate as it cooks.
  7. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.
  8. Let simmer about 30 minutes to let the flavors mesh.
  9. Enjoy on a chili dog with cheese on top or by itself. It's delicious!
