Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place the oil and onions in a large heavy pot over low heat. Cook for 10 minutes to wilt, add the garlic the last 2 minutes. Stir often. Add the ground beef, then raise the heat to medium. Cook until browned, breaking up the lumps, about 10 minutes. Drain to remove any excess grease.
  • Add the cocoa and the spices; cook, stirring for 1 minute.
  • Add the tomato paste, tomato sauce, vinegar, honey and beef broth. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the kidney beans, heat through and simmer for about 10 minutes for flavors to blend.
  • Just before serving, cook the linguine as directed in a large pot of boiling water. Drain.
  • To serve, divide the noodles evenly among 8 shallow pasta bowls. Top with the chili, garnish with cheese, chopped onions (and some people add oyster crackers.) Serve immediately.
