3 pounds ground beef
1 (14.5 ounce) can peeled and diced tomatoes with juice
1 C. tomato juice
2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
1 (14 ounce) can beef broth
1 pkg Two Alarm Chili mix
*2 Anaheim chile peppers, chopped
*1 serrano pepper, chopped
*1 habanero pepper, sliced
*1 jalepeno pepper, minced
2 or 3 T. chocolate powder
1 T. Cajun Chef green sauce
1 tsp. green jalapeņo sauce
1 or 2 T. honey
Salt (to taste)

*Most of the time I buy a tub of fresh salsa (medium) and dump that in instead of chopping the chiles. It works well.

Put the 3 pounds of ground beef in a large pot and cover it with water. Boil at medium/low for about 15 minutes (until all the red is gone).

Add the tomatoes, tomato paste and beef broth. Add Two Alarm Chili mix.

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer. I simmer it for about four hours (no longer!) and I taste it and adjust it.
