Skyline Chili Copycat Recipe

I’m always a little wary of copycat recipes.
But this one is quite good!!

Degree of Difficulty: Medium
Time Frame: 1 hour 45 minutes

2 pounds ground beef
2 cups chopped onions
4 cups beef stock
2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
2 -3 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 ounce grated unsweetened chocolate or 2 3/4 tablespoons cocoa
2 teaspoons instant minced garlic
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper or 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 bay leaves or 1/8 teaspoon bay leaf powder

chopped onion
finely shredded cheddar cheese

Brown ground beef and onion. Drain.

Add beef stock to beef mixture and simmer 10 minutes.

Add remaining 13 ingredients, simmer uncovered 1 hour.

Remove bay leaf, skim off extra fat.

Top with plenty of cheese and onions.
