I made this chili on the first day of fall. I couldnt wait for the weather to get a little chilly just so I could make this. Soup season is officially here! YAY!  Ive tried several chili recipes over the last couple of years and combined many of them to make this one. I served this with grilled cheese sandwiches and oyster crackers.

1/2 can kidney beans

1 can tomato sauce

1/2 can water

1 pkt. McCormick mild chili seasoning

1/2 pkt. McCormick hot chili seasoning

Heat evoo in large saucepan over med heat. Brown ground beef. Season with salt and pepper. Add onion and bell pepper to browned beef. Cook 5- 8 mins. Stir in rotel, tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, beans, cocoa powder and seasonings. Reduce heat to low and simmer 20 mins.
