A big pot of this slightly spicy chili makes any day a special event. The two secret ingredients: cocoa powder and Cherry Chipotle Not Ketchup.



   2 pounds ground beef

  1 pound ground turkey

  2 large yellow onions, diced

  2 red bell peppers, diced

  1/3 cup chili powder

  1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  4 15-ounce cans dark red kidney beans 

  2 28-ounce cans crushed tomatoes in puree

  1 teaspoon salt

  1 cup Cherry Chipotle Not Ketchup

  Shredded cheese and chopped green onions (for garnish)

  *1.5 hours | 10+ servings




  1. In a large pot, brown the ground beef and ground turkey together over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Add the onions and red bell peppers and cook another 5 minutes until the vegetables are starting to wilt.
  2. Add the chili powder, cocoa powder, beans, tomatoes, salt, and Cherry Chipotle Not Ketchup to the pot. Bring to a simmer, turn the heat down to low, and cover the pot. Cook 1 hour, or up to 4 hours (the longer it cooks, the better the flavors will develop and meld – just keep checking to make sure it’s not getting dry, and if it is, add some water).
  3. Serve hot, garnished with shredded cheese and green onions.
