Whoa, what a whirlwind the past week has been! Here's a quick and easy chili to make for dinner this week, for those days that you really don't feel like cooking! You may even have all these ingredients at home already! This cocoa chili is great for anyone on Candida Clear, or eating paleo or Whole30! The cocoa gives it a nice little twist and rich flavor. Don’t worry, it doesn’t taste like chocolate!
1 medium onion chopped
Garlic- 2 cloves minced
3 TBS cocoa powder (unsweetened)
3 TBS chili powder
1 lb ground beef
3 TBS tomato paste
3 cans diced tomatoes
Sautée garlic and onions in coconut oil for 3 to 5 minutes.
Add in tomato paste, cocoa powder and chili powder. Stir for 1 to 2 minutes.
Add in ground beef and cook for 5 minutes. (Not all of the beef will cook and that's okay. The rest will be cooked when you bring the soup to a boil.)
Add in diced tomatoes and bring to a boil. Then simmer for 15 minutes.
You can either enjoy right away after it cools down or put in a crockpot on low after it has boiled. I think the longer it cooks the better tasting it is!
