You dont really need instructions for a chili do you? ……ok ok……Brown Meat, with 1st 7 ingredients, add the remaining ingredients except for the chocolate.
Simmer until you have the right consistency and occasionally scoop of any scum that comes to the top.
Check the Seasoning and last but not least grate a bit of chocolate in the chili.

Pour the Chili in the pan, top with cheese, gratinate, then top with a dollop of Sour Cream and Some Guacamole.


Serve hot with Steamed Rice and Corn Chips


Lovely for on these chilly winter days
