I have been improving on my chili recipe and I am really pleased with the outcome. I add just a tiny bit of soy and teriyaki sauce, but most importantly, I add chocolate which gives it a warm and slightly sweet background flavor. This recipe got big praises from my husband and son and it is now officially my “go to” chili recipe.
2 lbs (0.9 kg) ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
15 oz (440 g) can tomato sauce
14 1/2 oz (428 g) can diced tomatoes
10 oz (295 g) can Rotel diced tomato and green chili, original
16 oz (473 g) can Navy beans, drained and rinsed
30-40 pieces (30 g) bittersweet chocolate chips
2 dashes soy sauce
2 dashes teriyaki sauce
a pinch of sugar
salt to taste
Dice onion and green pepper, set aside. Puree diced tomatoes, set aside. Brown meat until almost cooked thru, drain fat. Add onion and green pepper, continue to cook meat until cooked thru. Add remaining ingredients, except salt, and cook covered for 1/2 to 1 hour. Season with salt as you go. Enjoy!
