  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 2 cups diced onion

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 pounds ground beef

  • 2 tablespoons chili powder

  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin

  • 1 ½ tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice

  • 1 teaspoon ancho chile powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste

  • 2 cups beef broth

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained

  • 1 cup water


  1. Heat a large, deep pot over medium-high heat. Add coconut oil. When oil is shimmering, add onions. Cook and stir with a wooden spoon until slightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  2. Crumble ground beef into the pot. Stir to combine and cook until beef is no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Add chili powder, cumin, cocoa powder, oregano, allspice, ancho chili powder, and salt; stir until well combined. Mix in tomato paste and simmer for 1 to 2 minutes.

  3. Add beef broth, diced tomatoes with juice, and water. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 hours.

Cook's Note:

You can cook this in a pressure cooker on the Meat or Stew setting, or cook in a slow cooker on Low for 6 to 8 hours. If you use either of these methods, do not add the 1 cup water.
