Everybody Loves Chili

There’s just something about the combination of seasonings in this recipe that everyone loves. Serve it over a baked potato for a change of pace! Top it off with shredded cheese and sour cream.


1 Tbsp. olive oil

2 lbs. lean ground beef

1 c. diced yellow onion

1 clove garlic, finely minced

2 (14.5-oz.) cans zesty chili-style tomatoes

1 Tbsp. tomato paste

2 Tbsp. chili powder

2 1/2 tsp. ground cumin

2 tsp. paprika

2 tsp. cocoa powder

1 tsp. granulated sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

3 (15-oz.) cans mixed chili beans


1. In a large soup pot heat olive oil. Add onion and sauté 3 minutes, then add garlic and sauté 1 minute longer. Add beef and cook stirring occasionally until beef has browned. Drain if needed.

2. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, 1/2 cup water, chili powder, cumin, paprika, cocoa powder, sugar, salt and pepper. Stir in chili beans. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
