Full recipe in video below!
5 cups water
6 oz can of Tomato paste
1/2 oz baking chocolate (unsweetened - I use Baker's brand)
1/4 cup chili powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, or less, depending on your desired heat level
1/8 tsp black pepper
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 lb lean ground beef- 96%
Add the 5 cups of water in a large pot or Dutch oven.
Add the tomato paste and chocolate and heat over medium heat stirring to combine for about 3 minutes. (I stir with a whisk to really break up the tomato paste)
Add chili powder, cinnamon, garlic powder, cumin, allspice, cloves, red pepper flakes, black pepper, salt, sugar and vinegar.
Next, crumble the raw ground beef into the pot with your fingers, then use a potato masher, whisk or fork to break up the meat into very fine pieces.
Turn heat to high to bring to a boil.
Once boiling, turn the heat down to med-low.
Cook, uncovered, for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, at a low boil.. stirring occasionally until sauce has thickened quite a bit.
Serve over thin spaghetti or a hot dog.
