How to make it
- Cook and stir ground meat an onions in a 5 quart pot over medium heat until beef crumbles and is no longer pink (about 7 minutes).
- Drain grease and return meat to the pan.
- To the pot add the beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, chili powder, sugar, cocoa and salt.
- Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low.
- Cover pot and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Serve with desired optional toppings.
- Let simmer longer if you want it to be thicker. I let mine simmer for about an hour. (Also don’t forget to keep stirring)
