This is a thick chili flavored with beer, coffee and unsweetened cocoa powder. One day I ended up not having any cocoa powder so I tossed in two hearts of Dove plain milk chocolate candy....and decreased the brown sugar just a bit. It was still delish.
The only thing "difficult" about this recipe is that you do have to dice two medium onions. Other ingredients include, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, beef broth, dry seasonings and kidney beans. You may use all light red, all dark red or a combination of light and dark kidney beans. The chili goes excellently well with the cornbread recipe in the cookbook. This recipe makes 12 cups of chili.
