"Skyline" Chili

I've never tried Skyline Chili, but my friend has made it and tweaked it to suit her family. She said it's exactly like Skyline's.

**ADDENDUM: I have now tried Skyline chili and I'm proud to say mine is better. No, seriously. Theirs has weird texture that isn't identifiable. I'm told there are pieces of cocoa shell in it? I dunno. Anyway. The flavors are similar, but I think mine has a richer taste. Try it for yourself.

Skyline Chili

4lb ground beef (brown)
6 cloves garlic (minced)
2 onions (chopped, but I put in food processor on pulse)
2 lg cans Hunts tomato sauce (29oz each)
1 sm can tomato sauce (12 oz)
3 lg cans water + 1 sm can water (total about 100 oz but I use less if I need to, to make it fit in my pot)
3 T white vinegar
6 dashes Worchestershire sauce

1/4 cup sugar
4T Chili powder
1 1/4 T salt
12 drops Tabasco sauce
1T Cumin
1 tsp Coriander
1tsp Cayenne pepper
1tsp Black pepper
1T Cinnamon
1T Allspice
10 Bay leaves
1 tsp red pepper (crushed)
4 oz unsweetened chocolate - (I usually use Ghirardelli Chile Pepper Chocolate, but if that's not available, I use semi-sweet dark)

Brown beef and chop finely (I put in my food processor and pulse on low for a bit to get it really fine without making a paste out of it!). Saute onions and garlic, place in LARGE pot. Add wet ingredients, combine dry ingredients and add. Simmer uncovered 5-6 hours, stirring frequently (I use a spatula to scrape bottom). Serve over spaghetti with onions/oyster crackers/cheese...whatever you like! ENJOY!!!
