1 ( 1 ounce) square bittersweet chocolate
Chopped cilantro, optional

Heat oil I a large sauté pan until shimmering. Immediately add half the beef and sauté until cues are brown. Remove browned beef and sauté remaining beef. (crowding the pan will make the meat steam instead of brown, so cook in small batches until it’s finished. ) add oregano, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes to the last batch of beef and sauté 30 seconds add onion and sauté until it wilts and starts to turn color. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds more. Stir in reserve browned beef with chipotle chili powder and ancho chili powder. Remove pan from heat.

In a large nonreactive stockpot, stir together beans, tomatoes, red and green peppers and broth.

Add meat mixture to bean mixture and stir to combine.

Bring chili to a simmer over medium heat. Turn temperature down to low, just enough to keep it at a low simmer and cover the pan. Cook 1 to 1 ½ hours at a very low simmer until liquid reduces and chili begins to thicken. Stir occasionally to make certain nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan.

Add chocolate and stir. Cover and cook 45 to 60 minutes more. If not served immediately, let chili cool and refrigerate until tailgate day. Reheat before serving. Top with cilantro, if using, and offer hot sauce on the side. End.
