  • Servings: 2-3




1 Tablespoon of oil                         

1 medium onion diced

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 lb of ground beef

½ tsp ground oregano

1 ½ Tbsp chili powder

1 ½ Tbsp ground cumin

1 ½ Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

½ tsp ground allspice

1 tsp salt

1 can (6oz) tomato paste

1 can (14.5 oz) fire-roasted tomatoes

1 cup of chicken or beef stock (homemade if you have it on hand)

1/2  cup of water

Heat a pot over medium-high heat, then add the oil. When oil is heated, add onions, cook until they’re translucent, about 7 minutes. Add the garlic and as soon as it’s fragrant, about 30 seconds, add ground beef, mixing with a spoon to combine. Continue to cook the meat, stirring often, until it’s no longer pink.

In a small bowl, crush the oregano between your palms to release its flavor, then add the chili powder, cumin, cocoa, allspice, and salt. Combine with a fork, then add to the pot, and stir.

Next, add tomato paste and stir until combined, about 2 minutes.

Add the tomatoes with their juice, beef broth, and water to the pot. Stir well. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer.

Simmer uncovered for at least two hours.

Serving Suggestions: Serve topped with raw onions, shredded cheddar, and sliced avocado.  Add beans to chili if you desire.
