Spicy Chili

Don’t let the long list of ingredients intimidate you. This is easy, delicious and great for a crowd. Can also be doubled and made ahead.

4 tablespoons olive oil
2 onions, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 pounds ground lamb
1 pound ground beef
2 tablespoons cocoa (powder form)
1-1/2 teaspoons allspice
1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
¼ teaspoon cloves
4 cups beef broth
1/3 cup ketchup
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1-1/2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 (15 ounce) cans kidney beans, drained

Heat oil in a large Dutch oven and sauté onions and garlic until soft. Add meat and cook until browned, stirring frequently and breaking into pieces as you go. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 1 to 2 hours to give the flavors a chance to blend.
