Unsweetened cocoa powder gives a wonderful flavor but NOT the first day. Make the night before and allow to sit overnight to marry and mature the flavors. A small amount of an unsweetened natural peanut butter also adds a wonderful depth of flavor.

This is the chili recipe I've been making for years...

Domestic Goddess Chili

2 lbs. ground beef
1 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup chili powder
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 (15 ounce) cans tomato sauce
2 (8 ounce) jars taco sauce, mild or medium
2 (15 ounce) cans red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
shredded cheddar cheese, to garnish chili
tortilla chips, to scoop up chili

Cook ground beef in a Dutch oven over high heat; stirring to break up meat, until no longer pink (for 3 minutes).

Add onions; cook and stirring until translucent (for 2 minutes).

Stir in chili powder and garlic; cook one minute.

Stir in tomato sauce and taco sauce. Bring to a boil; then reduce heat, and simmer (uncovered) for 10 minutes.

Stir in the kidney beans and heat through.

Top each bowl with shredded cheddar cheese, and scoop up the chili with the tortilla chips.

Makes 8-10 servings.

Note: This recipe states to add 1/4 cup of chili powder, and yes, that's exactly how much I put in my chili.

So sorry about the double post. It's been quite sometime since I've been here, and I'm still learning how to use this site.

Thursday, when I moved all that food to my friend's freezer, I removed 4 lbs of beef - the oldest ones - and put them in my fridge to thaw for making chili today. 3 lbs of chuck were actually cut up cubes, to make chili, and there was a lb of ground beef. It was wet, which is typical, being frozen so long, but it browned well, as you see from the fond, which darkened it early, after deglazing all that. It has a cup of beer, some chicken broth (unless I have homemade beef stock, which is rare), 4 types of pure chili powders, sweet paprika, caribe, crushed black pepper, Mexican Oregano, cumin, coriander, only 3/4 c crushed tomatoes, chopped roasted and peeled poblanos or Numex, vinegar, and masa harina for thickening.

OK, this is Texas style chili - no beans, to stretch it, because I don't have a freezer to store all that! I started in a 9 qt Dutch oven, to brown all that meat, but transferred it to the 5 qt Dutch oven once it is all mixed together, to cook in the oven. After cooking partially covered in the 250° oven for 2 hours, I remove it from the oven, then spoon some of the liquid off the top, to whisk together with some masa harina, then stir this paste into the chili to thicken it. Then, I cover it, and bake another hour, and it's done! I served it with some shredded cheese, and some corn tortillas, heated on the stove over the gas flame.
