About this recipe: This was my mother's recipe. This chilli has the addition of chocolate. You won't taste the chocolate, but it will add a special dimension to the dish. Since it's made in a slow-cooker, it's fully transportable.

  • 450g extra lean minced beef (5-10% fat)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 250ml hot water
