This is another recipe I found in "The Red Hat Society Cookbook". The name of the recipe as well as the words "chili" and "chocolate" caught my attention. I hope you enjoy.

Increase heat to medium high and saute the onions and garlic in the bacon drippings for 8 minutes or until translucent. Add the ground chuck and saute until brown. Stir in the chili powder, cumin, coriander, and cinnamon. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add the chocolate, crushed tomatoes with juice, beer, and tomato paste. Add the bacon and mix well. Stir in the chicken broth and simmer until thickened to desired consistency. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Approximately 1 hour 15 minutes.
