F Chocolate Chestnut Chili

Chocolate Chestnut Chili, @winningatlosing

  • 2 pounds grass-fed ground beef
  • 1-2 onions, diced
  • 8 cloves garlic (I use roasted for extra flavor), minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 pinch cayenne
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 6oz. can tomato paste
  • 2 (14.5 oz.) cans fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 3.5 cups beef broth (homemade bone broth is best!)
  • Roasted chestnuts for topping
  1. In a large pot, brown ground beef in its own fat with onions & garlic.
  2. Add oregano, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, salt & cocoa powder to beef, stirring & allowing spices to become aromatic.  
  3. Add tomato paste, fire-roasted diced tomatoes, & broth to pot, stirring well.  
  4. Allow chili to simmer on low for two hours, stirring occasionally.
  5. When chili is done, top each individual bowl with a few chopped chestnuts and stir in. Not a chestnut fan? Top with a few slices of avocado, some sweet potato chunks, or even a dollop of homemade mayo!

Per person:

  • 1 chicken andouille sausage link (make sure it’s compatible!)
  • A few precooked shrimp

For the rice: Pulse a head if cauliflower in a food processor until grainy. “Dry fry” (no oil) it in a sauté pan until soft. Keep it on hand to add to any dish where you’d use rice! It accepts flavor well, as you’ll see in this dish.

For the gumbo: Heat a sauté pan over med low heat and add all of the veggies. Cook until soft and fragrant (a few minutes).  Add the cut up sausage and cook a few minutes to brown. Add the stock, tomato paste, seasonings. Raise heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally until heated through. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add shrimp just before serving to heat through. To serve, put a scoop of cauli rice into a bowl and ladle the gumbo over top and garnish with the green onion.
