David's Favorite Chili

My husband LOVES this chili!! Really it can be served with anything like Frito's or cornbread, but David can eat it plain with his favorite Nabisco Saltines. I rarely eat ground meat so I am out on this one, but everyone else likes it so we make it regularly during the fall/winter. This weekend David "guilted" me into making...haha (love you honey). Truth be told, I really don't mind at all considering it is one of the easiest recipes I hard can it be to put a bunch of stuff in a pot and let it simmer? This is a really easy recipe with some "different" ingredients but it is always a big hit when we serve it so I guess it must not be too!

2 lb lean ground beef
2 cans diced tomatoes in sauce
1 (29 oz) can tomato sauce
2 (15 oz) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15 oz) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 ½ cup chopped onion
¼ cup chopped green bell pepper
1/8 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
½ tsp. brown sugar
½ tsp dried oregano
½ tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp ground cumin
¼ cup chili powder
2 tbs. Cocoa powder
2 tbs. Minced garlic
2 (1oz) dove chocolate

Place ground beef in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and crumble.

In a large pot over high heat combine the ground beef, tomato juice, tomato sauce, kidney beans, pinto beans, onions, bell pepper, cayenne pepper, sugar, oregano, ground black pepper, salt, cumin, chili powder, cocoa, minced garlic and dove chocolate. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to low. Simmer for 1 ½.

Serve with Cornbread
