Great looking chili. Thanks for sharing recipe. I am Texan and put beans in mine but use pinto. When I did chili cook offs I would puree the beans and put them in there.
Thanks Brian. It's a pretty tasty chili. Pintos wouldn't hurt a thing

Damn , had a late night last night . I read that as " unsweetened cola " I looked at the ingredient pic , and was thinking wonder where he gets that dried cola ? I sat to close to the cooler and watched some John Wayne movies last night .

Not sure how I missed this one.
But yeah, adding the cocoa powder gives chili a deeper more complex flavor.
I guess that is one way to describe it.
And the chili does not taste like chocolate.

Good looking chili Jake.

this sounds great, very similar to mine i do put some green pepper in it . But never did cocoa or sugar. Will try it out on the pot I am planning on making this week, My grandkids don't like the beans by pureeing the beans do you use less beans when you do this will try it to make grandkids happy and no hot sauce or cayenne pepper either I add that to my bowl

I've never pureed the beans. Use mine whole. Let me know how you like the Cocoa. Maybe noboundaries noboundaries can help you with the bean question

I just dump a can of beans in the blender and turn them into a liquid. Add a little water or beef stock if necessary to thin. Seasoned black beans are my preference, but Bushes has a line of flavored beans, any one of which will work.

I tried refried beans once in the chili. Nope. Did not work.

Nice looking meal here but I have to disagree. What you have made here is stew, not chili. As soon as those beans hit the mixture it becomes stew!
