Preparation Time30 minutes


1.5 lbs. ground beef
1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
2 15 oz. cans kidney beans
2 15 oz. cans chick peas
2 large sweet onion
2 large green bell pepper
2 squares (generally one and a half inch squares each) semi sweet baking chocolate
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons or to taste chili powder
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter salted

1. Brown the ground beef in 1/2 stick of butter. Organic beef or bison are best.

2. Chop and saute onions in remaining butter. Add to browned beef.

3. Add remaining canned ingredients to beef and onion mixture, including crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, drained kidney beans, and drained chick peas. Add chili powder, sugar, and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Allow mixture to reach a simmer.

4. Dice and add green peppers. Add chocolate and stir simmering mixture to ensure it has melted and is distributed evenly. Allow to simmer another ten minutes. Add salt to taste, but remember that the canned tomatoes and beans already contain salt so you may not need much!

5. Serve either alone with grated cheese or over rice.
