Total Time 25minutes
2poundshomemade chorizoor store bought
4ouncesbell pepperchopped, about 1 medium
4ouncesonionchopped, 1/2 of 1 medium
3cupsbeef/chicken brothor more as needed during simmering
Over a medium-high flame, heat the oil in a large skillet and brown the chorizo. Lower the heat to medium, push the chorizo to the sides of the skillet and add the chopped onion and bell pepper, sauteing until the onions are almost translucent. Mix the chorizo and vegetables together and add the granulated garlic, chile powder and cumin to the pan, cooking just a minute to become aromatic.
Add the crushed tomatoes, broth, cocoa and instant coffee. If you don't have any instant coffee, trade 1 cup of broth for 1 cup of coffee. Stir and bring up to a simmer.
Drain the black soy beans and add to the chili, simmering for about 20 minutes. Add more broth as needed to your desired consistency.
Taste and adjust seasonings per your taste. Mine did not need salt.
***I used Fresh Homemade Chorizo in this recipe. Using another kind of chorizo will result in a different flavor as it will have differing amounts of herbs and spices. You will have to adjust the seasonings to your taste.**Here is the nutritional facts if not using the black soy beans: Cal: 296, Fat: 20, Carbs: 10, Fiber: 2, Protein: 20, Net Carbs: 8
