Garnishes: chopped onion, beans, sour cream, guacamole - go crazy!
1.Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender, about 3-5 minutes.
2. Add ground beef and stir until browned.
3. Add chili powder, cinnamon, cumin, allspice, cloves, bay leaf, chocolate, beef broth, tomato sauce, cider vinegar, and red pepper and stir. Bring to a simmer, turn heat to low and cook for 90 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes or so. If you like your chili on the thicker side, keep simmering it until it is the consistency you want.
4. Remove the bay leaf. Serve over spaghetti and top with LOTS of shredded cheddar cheese for three way, add some chopped onions for four way, add some drained heated kidney beans for five way.
