Chocolate Chili

I went to a Super Bowl Party/Chili Extravaganza on Sunday, so wanted to find a great Paleo-friendly chili recipe for my entry into the “chili bowl.” The Chocolate Chili recipe from Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat by Melissa Joulwan, with some modifications based on my own tastes, was a big winner. My changes were:

  • Increased the cocoa powder to 1/2 cup (instead of 1.5 tablespoons)
  • Added 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
  • Used a large (28 oz) can of tomatoes, instead of the 14.5 oz can

My Washington’s Green Grocer box will include 4 pounds of grass-fed ground beef, so I’m going to make another batch (maybe a double!) tonight.
