Super Bowl Chili
Makes 8 (1/2 cup) servings
Spice blend: mix together
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

1 cup finely chopped onions
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic cloves
3/4 cup tomato sauce
2 tablespoons ketchup
3/4 cup water
3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
2 teaspoons grated unsweetened chocolate
Spice Blend: Mix all the dry ingredients together. Set aside until ready for use.
For the Chili: Combine meat, onions and chopped garlic in large pot and brown. Add tomato sauce, ketchup, water, vinegar and honey. As mixture comes to a boil, add the dry spice mixture and lower to a simmer for ½ hour. Stir mixture constantly so that the meat breaks up and has a fine texture.
After 30 minutes, add grated chocolate and return to a simmer for another 30 minutes. Chili should be a little tight. Add tomato juice if it gets too dry during reheating.
