Paleo Chocolate Chili

Submitted by: MISSSVJS


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 tablespoons coconut oil

    2 medium onions, diced (about 2 cups)
    4 cloves garlic, minced (about 4 teaspoons)
    2 lbs. ground beef
    1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
    2 tablespoons chili powder
    2 tablespoons ground cumin
    1Ĺ tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
    1 teaspoon ground allspice
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
    1 can (14.5 oz.) fire-roasted, chopped tomatoes
    1 can (14.5 oz.) beef broth
    1 cup water


Directions

Heat a large, deep pot over medium-high heat, then add the coconut oil. When the oil is melted, add onions, stir with a wooden spoon and cook until theyíre translucent, about 7 minutes. Add the garlic and as soon as itís fragrant, about 30 seconds, crumble the ground meat into the pan with your hands, mixing with the wooden spoon to combine. Continue to cook the meat, stirring often, until itís 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, stirring like you mean it. 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 so the chili enjoys a gentle simmer.

Simmer uncovered for at least two hours. Do not skimp on the simmer.

Serve in deep bowls with big spoons!
