Red Gold is a brand name of canned tomatoes. If you can't find it, use any brand you favor. I love the texture combo of ground and cubed meat in my chili; it becomes so tender. Cocoa, coffee and cinnamon may sound strange, but it really adds depth of flavor. This makes a huge pot; fee free to halve. It is not hot, just so good and flavorfully addictive. It's even better the next day.
