Cooking Stuff: Cocoa Campout Chili

by This is Carrie on July 22, 2008

Throw in a couple hot dogs roasted over the fire and this campout meal couldn’t get much more satisfying. It’s a perfect meal to make ahead of time and heat up the first night at camp. Want a vegetarian chili? This one is YUMMY!

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 (46 fluid ounce) can tomato juice
  • 1 (29 ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 chopped tomato
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder


Directions:

  1. Place ground beef in a large, deep skillet with chopped onion. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and crumble.
  2. In a large pot over high heat combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer for 1 1/2 hours. (Note: If using a slow cooker, set on low, add ingredients, and cook for 8 to 10 hours.)

Serves: 10
