Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 onions ( finely chopped (plus more for topping))

1 ounce unsweetened chocolate ((see note 1))

1 clove garlic (minced)

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3/4 teaspoon allspice

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

2 cups chicken broth

16 ounces tomato sauce

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons tomato paste

2 teaspoons brown sugar

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 pounds ground beef ((preferably 85/15, see note 2))

cooked spaghetti (for serving)

shredded cheese

Directions

In a Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat, heat oil until shimmering. Cook onions until softened, about 5 minutes.

Stir in chocolate, garlic, chili powder, oregano, cinnamon, allspice, and cloves until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add broth, tomato sauce, vinegar, tomato paste, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce.

Stir in beef and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 20 to 25 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper (I like 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper).

Serve over cooked spaghetti with desired toppings such as cheese, beans, onions, and crackers.
