Dark Chocolate Chili Mole

Sometimes you just want a darn good chili, especially on a cool or cold day. Or you want a chili dog or chili burger while watching the game. As a trucker, you don’t always have a lot of time for prep and cooking, but you always want something that is delicious and sticks to the ribs. Here is a quick down-and-dirty chili recipe that is hearty and filling, and the addition of a few special ingredients really adds some extra dimension of flavor. I give you Dark Chocolate Chili Mole.

What You Need

What You Do

  1. Chop the bacon into pieces approximately the size of a quarter and brown in a skillet.
  2. Remove bacon into a bowl and drain off most of the grease from the pan, leaving just enough to sauté with.
  3. Sauté the onion until translucent and set aside with the bacon.
  4. Sauté the beef and when it just begins to brown, add the bacon and onion back, then add all the seasonings and stir well to incorporate.
  5. Add the bone broth / beef stock, tomato paste, tomatoes, the rest of the veggies and apple cider vinegar.
  6. Stir to incorporate well and season again with salt and pepper to taste if needed.
  7. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about twenty minutes, stirring occasionally.

Top Recipe Tips

  • If you don’t like spicy, omit the jalapeño, but if you like spicy, add more jalapeños or a spicier pepper of your choice.
  • Omitting the bacon and adding chorizo will give you a different flavor.

  • KathleenI made this Chile Mole yesterday, and let me tell you – IT’S FABULOUS!  I’ve never wanted wanted to try chocolate with any protein, but after reading the recipe, I thought “Why not?”  And of course, there’s that pound of bacon – what could be wrong with that?  :)  It goes together quickly and the first taste left me totally aghast – the chocolate is not front and center, as I thought (was afraid) it might be – oh no, the flavor has a depth and complexity that must be tasted to be believed.  We  have a chili recipe which we’ve made for years, but this one’s a keeper, as a luxurious alternative.  Just OUTSTANDING!!! <3ReplyCancel
