I make this chili with Hershey's Milk Chocolate "Snack-Size" Candy Bars, but sometimes I will use 10 Hershey Milk Chocolate Kisses in place of the snack size chocolate bars. I love how this chili smells while it's simmering. You can actually smell the chocolate.
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup diced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons chili powder
3 (8-oz.) cans tomato sauce
4 Hershey's Milk Chocolate "Snack-Size" Candy Bars
1 (16 oz.) can Bush's Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
In a 3-quart saucepan, spray the bottom of pan with a no-stick olive oil cooking spray.
Add the ground beef, onion, and garlic, and cook until the beef is brown, and onion is soft.
Drain the meat, to remove any excess grease, then add the meat back to the pan.
Add all of the chili powder to the pan, along with the tomato sauce, and the snack-size chocolate candy bars. Cook over a low simmer for 5 minutes; stirring frequently.
Add the kidney beans, and stir frequently while simmering for 5 minutes, or until the chili is heated through.
Ladle the chili into bowls, and serve immediately.
