1Mix all ingredients in 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker.
2Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours or until beef is tender. Remove cinnamon sticks before serving.
Cinnamon sticks and baking cocoa may seem like odd ingredients for a chili recipe, but the two ingredients are based on the spicy Mexican mole sauce that includes Mexican or bitter chocolate. Baking cocoa makes the sauce taste richer without adding sweetness.
This chili is flavorful and delicious on its own. But a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of sliced green onions and shredded Cheddar cheese make it extra special.
