Peppers cut into small cubes. The products are processed in the order they are listed. Chop the onion strips, sliced ​​garlic and sauté in olive oil. Put spices are listed in succession to the peppers and stir for a few seconds, begin to smell. Put them peppers and fry with constant stirring. I dribble and a few drops of water, I'm afraid not Zagora spices. Insert the minced meat, as is broken impeller. Leave it turns white, stirring occasionally. Put the remaining products to Cocoa. Leave to boil, then add the chocolate, stir well, kotlonat reduced and let simmer slowly with the lid ajar for an hour and a half. This is the original recipe. I do not put a metered water and poizplakvam jar with tomatoes (from thrift) and put the beans with his water. Furthermore, I do half dose mince, tomatoes, peppers, beans, spices but leave with that amount. Who does not want the dish is spicy, let's replace with chili pepper. At the beginning of smell may be strange (depends on the quality of the minced meat, and that spices have not developed their strength), but after an hour and a half simmering flavor is unique, but also taste. The recipe is part of another, more complex recipe - Чили con carne with corn crust and two kinds of cold sauce .

Thank you Aliana! Long wanted to taste Chili con carne. For the first time I do it. Slightly slowed products, Koto 4 persons. Was very tasty, all at home licking dishes. Go to favorites, I'll cook him.

inhabited, very glad that you have decided to try the recipe and that you like the dish! In my experience, though spices are typical of Bulgarian cuisine, especially cooking with cocoa total bouquet much like my Bulgarian friends. Most are surprised when they hear that the dish has such *unusual* things) Once I prepared chili to my guests, and one directly said that not taste that. But while stew dish, he most hovering around the kitchen (you know how smells) :) And finally licked his plate and :) By the way: you can comfortably prepare the entire quantity and freeze the rest. About 3 months can be stored in the freezer.
