Hey fellas! Have you ever bragged about your chili recipe? Have you ever made chili in a microwave? Here’s my recipe for just that. I love making all types of meals so try this one. Oh by the way…
Make it your damn self!

• 1 Tbsp. oil
• 1 onion, chopped
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 lb. lean ground beef
• 2 (14 oz.) cans diced tomatoes with onions and garlic
• 6 oz. can tomato paste
• 4 oz. can diced green chilies, undrained
• 2 (16 oz.) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
• 1 Tbsp. chili powder
• 1/2 tsp. cumin
• 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
• 1/8 tsp. pepper
• half of a 1 ounce square unsweetened chocolate
• Prep Time: 25 minutes
• Cook Time: 25 minutes
• Total Time: 50 minutes
• Yield: Serves 4

Combine oil, onion and garlic in a 3 quart microwave safe glass casserole dish. Microwave on high for 4 minutes, stirring once during cooking.

Add beef to casserole and cook on high for 4 minutes, stirring once during cooking to break up meat. Cook 3 minutes longer, then drain off any fat or liquid.

Add all remaining ingredients. Mix well to combine. Microwave, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Stir well. Cook 10-15 minutes longer until thickened and bubbly, stirring once during cooking.
