Hi Bethann! I was hoping that you could do me a favor and post your chili recipe again. I had it and we loved it, but I have lost the recipe and I want to make it in a few days. I remember that it had cocoa powder in it. I looked at all of the recipes on the board and did not see yours listed. Thanks ever so much in advance.

1 lb ground beef
1 lb turkey
(Or two pounds ground beef. Brown and drain.)
In large kettle, combine meat with:

1 lg can tomato juice
1 15 oz can Hunt's tomato sauce
4 15 oz cans chili beans (the already-seasoned ones)
1/4 C baking cocoa
1 tbsp chili powder

Simmer as long as possible. Fine made a day or two in advance. Serve with cheddar cheese and butter crackers or corn bread.


That's the old recipe. I actually make a completely different chili now. Here's that recipe:

BA's Three Bean Chili

2 lbs ground beef, browned and drained
1/4 tsp garlic powder (or a little fresh)
1/4 tsp onion powder (or half onion, chopped finely and cooked with the meat)
4 tsp chili powder (or to taste)
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 cans or one large can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
2 cans or one large can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cans or one large can kidney beans, drained drained and rinsed
1 16 oz can corn, drained
1 48 oz can tomato sauce
1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes

Mix together in large pot or crock pot, cook on low for several hours or put together the day before.

NOTE: this could handle 1/4 cup cocoa added in, as well.

Blessings,

Bethann

I would keep on low all day. If your crock pot tends to run hot, you may want to heat it up in a pan on the stove in the morning and then just keep it on "keep warm" all day rather than low. Play around with it and see.

Blessings,
