Easy Three Bean Chocolate Chili Recipe

    6 Servings


  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 large Onion, diced
  • 4 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano
  • 2 tablespoons Chili Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 6 ounce can Tomato Paste
  • 1 tablespoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Chocolate Extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Coffee Extract
  • 1 14.5 ounce can Diced Tomatoes
  • 3 cups Beef Broth
  • 1 15 oz can Black Beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 15 ounce can Pinto Beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 15 oz can Red Beans, rinsed and drained


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds.
  2. Add the meat, breaking up large chunks and crumbling it with a spatula or wooden spoon. Cook until meat is completely browned.
  3. Crush the oregano leaves in your palms to release the flavor, and add to meat mixture. Stir in chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, paprika, and salt. Add the tomato paste and stir until well combined.
  4. Add the extracts, tomatoes with their juices, and broth to the pot. Stir well then bring to a boil. Add the beans then reduce heat to a low, gentle simmer. Simmer uncovered for at least 2 hours.
  5. Serve with all your favorite toppings.
