  • 2 qt Water
  • 1/2 lb Ground pure beef suet
  • 1 lg Sweet onion; finely chopped
  • 2 lb Lean beef
  • - coarse ground or 1/4" cube

* = Can substitute 2 - 15 1/2 oz. cans each, pinto beans and 2 quarts

Soak dry beans in water to cover overnight; drain. Add 2 quarts water;
simmer, covered, for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until done. Drain, reserving 1 cup
of cooking liquid; set aside. In large 3 quart Dutch oven or heavy kettle,
melt suet. Add onion; saute over medium heat until transparent. Add meat
and brown, stirring often. Drain all but 2 Tbsp. of drippings; add
seasonings, cocoa and chilies. Cover; simmer for 1 1/2 hours, stirring
often. Add tomato juice to keep chili to a medium consistency. If a
thinner chili is desired, use reserved bean juice. To serve, add warm pinto
beans to chili or serve as a side dish. Add a dollop of sour cream on each
bowl. This is a spicy, meaty chili.
