Slow Cooker Chocolate Chili with Three Beans

Directions

  1. In a large skillet cook ground beef over medium-high heat until brown, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Drain off fat.
  2. Transfer meat to a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Stir in tomatoes, black beans, pinto beans, kidney beans, broth, yellow onions, tomato sauce, chili powder, chipotle pepper, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, and coriander.
  3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours. If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Stir in chocolate and honey. Cover and cook about 15 minutes more or until heated through. If desired, serve with sour cream and green onions and sprinkle lightly with cocoa powder.

I thought it was good, & served with sour cream, delicious, but hubby didn't like the cinnamon back note. Savory, chocolate flavor is subtle, but still missing a bit of "something' & besides much needed salt (Add about 1-1/2 teaspoons or so, and at least 1/4 t. pepper), I don't know what, so 3 instead of 4 stars. I went generous on all spices & used the largest chipotle in the can & it wasn't overpowering. But I was looking for a bit more richness--maybe a packet or two of Knorr beef Flavor Boost.

I made this, and i don't know if I added too much chocolate, but yuck! I hardly ever don't like things I make but I had to throw this out.
