From Ortega's Mexican Fiesta booklet found on an end-cap at the supermarket. If I use mild taco seasoning and mild salsa my husband will eat bowls and bowl of this and for a man that hates chili this is saying a lot. Feel free to spice it up! Garnish this hearty dish with crumbled taco shells, shredded cheddar cheese, cilantro and diced fresh tomatoes. Yum!

  1. In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat; add onion and garlic. Cook and stir until onions are tender, just about 3 minutes. Add chiles, taco seasoning mix and ground beef. Cook beef, stirring often, about 5 minutes or until browned.
  2. Add tomatoes, cinnamon, water, salsa, chocolate chips and almonds. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 45 minutes. Stir every 10-15 minutes to combine the flavors. Add beans and heat an additional 15 minutes.
