Your mother’s homemade chili gets a modern twist with this delightful recipe by Cooking Classy.
What Makes This Pinworthy?
While cooking, this recipe smells like traditional chili, but it has a few extra ingredients that enrich its flavor. Instead of traditional diced tomatoes, this soup uses a couple cans of diced tomatoes with green chilies. Also, cumin, paprika, and ground coriander are complimentary though less than traditional additions. The secret ingredient, cocoa powder, adds a complex and musky flavor that sets this chili apart from all others. If you’re looking for an amazing chili to try this fall or winter, this is it- the flavor is everything you’re looking for.
Chili is notorious for being a slow cooker recipe, meaning that it can be made and forgotten for hours, and this recipe is no exception. After just fifteen minutes of preparation, this chili can be left alone to cook for about six hours. The finished product requires very little effort to garnish- simply serve it with shredded cheese, crackers, cornbread, and more.
This recipe freezes wonderfully, so consider making a double batch. Simply make sure to borrow a second slow cooker, and this recipe is easy to prepare another batch of- the prep time should take only a few minutes more.
