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 lb lean ground beef
1 onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 can rotel
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes
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
salt and pepper
1 tbsp evoo
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.
