2 1⁄2 tablespoons chili powder

- Melt the tallow in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the onion & both bell peppers & cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the onion is softened.
- Add the beef & sauté until browned, about 10 minutes more. Drain the fat from the pan & return the pan to medium-high heat.
- Add the tomatoes & their juice, bone broth, tomato paste, garlic, bay leaf, chili powder, cumin, paprika, curry powder, cinnamon, cayenne, red pepper flakes, 31⁄2 teaspoons salt, & 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper & stir together. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat to medium-low.
- Stir in the chocolate & simmer for 45 minutes.
MAKE IT AHEAD: Prepare & cook chili, then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5 days, or in the freezer for 4 months. Defrost chili, warm it on the stove over medium heat for 15 minutes.
- Heat the oil on sauté mode in the Instant Pot.
- Add the peppers and onions and sauté for 10 minutes, until softened. Season with salt and stir.
- Add the ground beef and all of the spices and continue to cook until fully browned.
- Add the tomatoes & their juice, bone broth, tomato paste, and garlic.
- Secure the lid, make sure the valve is set to seal, and set for 20 minutes on high pressure. Release the pressure and stir in the chocolate. Serve hot.
Note: I prefer to brown the meat in a cast iron pot on the stove because I think it browns better, more quickly, and the flavors are deeper. I add the browned meat and spices to the veggies once browned.

I just made this and it is delicious! I cooked it on the stovetop instead of my instantpot. The addition of cinnamon and chocolate adds such an interesting and delicious depth of flavor! I will be making this often.
OMG so easy, filling and delish! We run a wellness accountability coaching business and we had been testing out fall recipes to recommend to clients and this one was a huge winner! We immediately texted the recipe to all our clients as the perfect, easy filling meal. Plus it freezes well!l It’s going in the permanent rotation!
