  1. Whisk together the cocoa powder, Mexican oregano, basil, marjoram, cumin, hot chili powder, garlic powder, hickory salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Combine the seasoning mix with the buffalo meat, chorizo, and pork; cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat, and fry the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon to a large, heavy pot. In the same skillet, cook and stir the onion, habanero peppers, jalapeno peppers, garlic, and New Mexico chile powder in the bacon grease until onions are translucent; add the onion mixture to the pot.
  3. In the same skillet, fry the seasoned meat in small batches until well browned, adding lard as needed; remove the meats to the pot. Stir the diced tomatoes with green chiles, salsa, tomato paste, picante sauce, diced green chiles, and dark beer into the pot. Simmer until the meat is easily pierced with a fork, 2 to 3 hours. If the chili seems too dry, add dark beer as needed.

I love it! I must admit that I used fresh garlic. Renée

Not bad, but pretty spicy and I cut back on the spicy ingredients. I cut the cayenne way down and only used jalapenos. I suppose it might've been cut more by the beer, but I didn't add the bee...

5 stars due to the dry seasoning alone - it truly carries the chili in my opinion (and maybe the beer?). MEAT: Dry seasoning is spectacular - the cocoa seemed to enhance the other seasonings ...
