Cook Time:

20 mins.


4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 Carroll Shelby's® Chili Kit
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • one 8-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 2 cups beef stock or water

  1. HEAT olive oil in a large Dutch oven and when hot, add beef in batches to brown. Transfer to a bowl when brown. Repeat with remaining beef.
