Beef and Bean Chili

With rich ground beef, peppery cilantro, and spicy jalapenos, this incredible chili has all the basics covered. But what is that flavor singing in the background? Your guests will be surprised -- and delighted -- to learn that the secret ingredient is chocolate. When buying jalapeno chiles for this dish, choose those with vibrant, blemish-free skins. And remember: the smaller the pepper, the hotter the pepper.

Beef and Bean Chili

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven brown beef over medium heat; drain off fat. Add onions, garlic, and peppers to pan; cook about 5 minutes or until almost tender. Add the chili powder and cumin; cook for 1 minute, until fragrant. Add tomato sauce and water; bring to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.
  2. Mash one-third of the beans. Stir all beans into chili. Return to simmering; cook about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in the chopped cilantro, chocolate and salt until chocolate is melted. Serve topped with corn chips.

From the Test Kitchen

Because hot chile peppers, such as jalapenos, contain volatile oils that can burn skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands touch the peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.
