All Gone Chili

It is sooo cold, snowy, dark, gloomy and I have a head cold to boot. Yicky!!What a day. 

Well I decided to just spice thing up so last night I whipped up a big batch of chili.  Never can go wrong here chili!!  Brian is crazy about it and so am I.  Just pulled together what I had on had and it was hot, spicy, sweet, and satisfying. 


2 pounds ground meat of your choice
1 can chili hot beans
1 can chili mild beans
3 diced onions
4 cloves chopped garlic
1 large can pureed tomato
1 C. ketchup
1/3 C. Chili Powder
1 t. cumin
1 t. cocoa powder, unsweetened
1 t. salt
1 t. pepper
2 T. sugar
3 c. water or a can of beer

Brown the meat with the onions and garlic and season with the the salt and pepper.  Add the tomatoes, beans, ketchup, chili powder, cumin, cocoa, sugar, and beer or water and simmer for 2-3 hours stirring and adding liquid if needed.  Serve steaming hot with your favorite toppings and see what happens!!
