Ingredients:  
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 envelope chili seasoning mix
1/2 c. tomato juice (I use the spicy V-8 juice)
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained (I use the ones with green chilies)
1 can chili beans, undrained
1 T brown sugar (optional)
1/3 cup Hershey's Special Dark chocolate chips

Directions:
Directions:
Spray heavy skillet with Pam spray and cook ground beef and onions over medium heat until the beef is no longer pink. Stir in chili seasoning mix, then add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir to ensure all chocolate chips are melted and incorporated into the chili. Serve!

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
After cooking the ground beef and onions, you can also just throw all of the ingredients in a crock pot and cook for 3-6 hours.

You might think chocolate in chili sounds a bit odd, but the chocolate adds something "special" to plain old chili. I'm a vegetarian, so I usually substitute Boca or Morning Star veggie crumbles for the beef. It tastes just as good -- just ask my carnivore husband!
