Chipotle-Chocolate Chili

I know....there is yucky stuff on the ground....we are ALL tired of it! However, one cannot eat chili in the summer so here's a recipe that our family likes very much!

1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 cup diced onion
1 cup chopped red bell pepper (I use green)
1 t minced garlic
3 T brown sugar
2 T chili powder
1 T unsweetened cocoa
1 t ground cumin
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 t salt
1-15 oz can pinto beans, drained
1 15 oz can kidney beans, drained
2 14-5 oz cans diced tomatoes, undrained---I use less because---we just like it!
1 14 oz can chicken broth
1/2 cup roasted chipotle salsa

Add ground beef or turkey, onion, bell pepper, and garlic to stockpot. Cook over medium high heat until meat is browned and veggies are tender; approximately 8 minutes. Drain. Add sugar, chili powder, cocoa, cumin, black pepper, salt, pinto beans, kidney beans, tomatoes, broth and salsa. Stir to blend; bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 min until slightly thickened.

I make this in 3 batches---freeze two---you girls know the drill!!!!

We top with sour cream have a little biscuit a little tortilla chip...YUMMMMOOOO!

Seriously, its good!
