1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound lean ground beef
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 10.75-oz. cans condensed tomato soup
1 15-oz. can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 15-oz. can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 15-oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained


Warm oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté until translucent, 5 to 6 minutes. Add garlic and stir for 1 minute. Add ground beef and cook, breaking up meat with a spoon, until it is no longer pink, 8 minutes. Stir in chili powder, cocoa and pepper and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Reduce heat to low and stir in tomato soup and 2 Tbsp. water. Cover and simmer to blend flavors, 10 minutes. Stir in beans and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes longer. Spoon chili into bowls and serve.
