  • 1-1/2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) no-salt whole tomatoes, undrained, coarsely chopped
  • 1 can (6 ounces) reduced-sodium tomato paste
  • 3/4 cup beer or reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
  • 2-3 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa

  1. Spray large saucepan with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Add ground beef, onions, bell pepper, and garlic; cook over medium heat until meat is brown and vegetables are tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Add chili powder, cumin, oregano, and cloves; cook 1 to 2 minutes longer.
