Chocolate Chili

I love two things in life – beautifully designed homes, and food. This recipe not only tastes delicious, but it looks good too. I just love the way the accruements shine like a beautiful piece of art all on their own. I promise your guests will love the taste (and look) of this dish too.

Here’s the other thing. This chili is super easy to make, quick, and all done in a single pot. You know I hate a mess. Also, I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t love this meal – how could you not it’s literally made with chocolate -yes that’s right- chocolate. Interested in trying chocolate chili? I thought so. Let’s get started

This one-pan pasta perfection is a burst of honey-sweet bacon with melty cheese and zesty lemon. It’s literally my favorite quick + easy pasta. I make it at least a few times a month. I think you should too. Want to learn more? Read on.


  • Prep: 10 min
  • Cook: 20 min
  • Total: 30 min
  • Serves: 2-4


  • 3 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • 12 oz ground beef 80/20%
  • 1 Can of black beans
  • 1 Can of stewed tomatoes
  • 2 tsp Chipotle chili Paste
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 1 Carrot
  • 1 Lemon or Lime
  • 1 Bunch of Green Onion
  • 2 oz. Sour cream
  • Pinch of: Garlic Powder, Ground Cumin Chili Powder, Paprika, Dried Oregano,
  • Chili Flakes to taste
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Extra Sharp Cheddar
  • 1 Bag of Tortilla Chips


  • Wash and clean fresh produce. I like to place washed produce.
  • Dice Onion, and carrot into bite-sized cubes
  • Do the same to the green onions but separate the white bottoms from the green tips. The greens will be used to garnish.
  • Strain and Rinse Black Beans
  • Heat 3 teaspoons of cooking oil in a pot.
  • Cook Beef breaking up as you go – until lightly golden brown. This should take 4-5 minutes.
  • Strain cooked beef to remove excess liquid fat.
  • Add back into the pot the white bottoms of the green onion along with the carrots and diced red onion
  • Sautee together with dry spices including salt and pepper to taste. This should be 4-5 minutes
  • Now the fun part, add in the semi-sweet chocolate, tomatoes, 1 1/2 cups of water, and chili paste. Give everything a few goods stirs to incorporate

  • Bring chili to a boil on high heat, then reduce to a simmer and let simmer for 10-11 minutes. Once cooked let sit for 2 minutes before serving.
  • Shred cheese and set aside to finish the dish
  • Combine sour cream with the juice of half a lemon and a pinch of salt + pepper. Serve – with a few tortilla chips, a dollop of sour cream, and a sprinkling of both cheese and green onion tops. I use two shallow bowls. Be ready for seconds and enjoy. Pro Tip: Double up on this and serve as leftovers.

This chocolate chili is a must-try. I still can’t believe how delicious it is. Serve on a rainy Sunday day and make extra to have leftovers all week long. Because if this, I almost always end up making this dish on a Sunday because I am usually too tired to do much else, but also because it’s just too darn good. I always crave ir after a long weekend. This chili is a crowd-pleaser and you won’t regret trying it out. It has been a staple in our household for years. Enjoy and xoxo.
