2 ears fresh corn

2 teaspoons chipotle hot sauce
1/2 cup smoked sun-dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 ripe Hass avocado, coarsely chopped

Mole-Style Chili
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup prediced yellow onions
1 lb lean ground beef, 7% fat
1 (1.25-oz) package chili seasoning
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 (15-oz) cans reduced-sodium black beans, drained
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 (10-oz) cans fire-roasted diced tomatoes with green chiles
1/2 cup strong cold-brewed coffee
4 cups beef stock (or broth)
2 oz dark chocolate
1 ripe Hass avocado, coarsely chopped
Preheat large stockpot on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Place oil and onions in pot; cook and stir 3–4 minutes or until onions are tender. Add beef, seasoning, pumpkin pie spice, and sugar; cook 4–5 minutes, stirring to crumble meat, and until no pink remains.
Drain beans. Stir in tomato paste, tomatoes, coffee, beans, and stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low; simmer 30 minutes (or 1 hour). Break chocolate into pieces; stir in during last 5 minutes of cook time until melted and sauce has thickened. Peel, pit, and chop avocado. Top chili with avocado; serve. (Makes 8 servings.)
Aprons Advice
Complete your meal with your favorite chili toppings such as avocado, shredded cheese, sour cream, and cilantro, and fruit parfaits for dessert.
This is a non-traditional chili that is slightly bitter. Add 1 tablespoon additional brown sugar for a sweeter taste.
