Okay so I found this amazing recipe from Allrecipes.com and it’s basically the most amazing chili I’ve run across. The other day I made it and just REALLY wanted to share its amazing-ness. The secret ingredient to the chili is CHOCOLATE. Yup, and don’t be skeptical, it’s so awesome.
2- 29oz can tomato sauce
2- 28oz can diced tomatoes
2 C diced onions
1 T italian seasoning
1 lb. bacon
2 lb. spicy sausage (I’ve also tried it with sage sausage for less spicy)
3 lb. lean ground beef
1- 32oz. BBQ sauce (I like Sweet Baby Ray’s)
1/2 C chili powder
4- 15.25 oz. can kidney beans (I’ve also done them with black in a pinch)
2- 1 oz. squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1. In large pot, combine tomato sauce, tomatoes, onion and Italian seasoning.
2. In large skillet, cook bacon, drain and add to the pot. Do likewise to the other meats.
This will make so much, like 20 servings. Nut trust me, people will love it. It’s got a depth of flavor I’ve never found with any other chili. What’s your favorite type of chili?
