Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar adds delicious flavor to this black bean chili. This chili is sure to be a crowd pleaser for your next "get together"! Enjoy as a festive side dish, or add ground turkey for a heartier meal. 

1/4 cup Garlic Olive Oil
2 cups chopped sweet onion
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3  160z cans black beans (or be creative and use 3 different beans...chili beans, black beans, pinto beans or kidney beans)
1  16oz can tomato sauce
1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar

Heat the Garlic Olive Oil in a stockpot and saute` the onion and garlic for about 10 minutes, until soft. Add the spices and mix thoroughly. Add the beans and liquid from one can, plus the tomato sauce. Simmer this slowly about 15 minutes. Add the Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar. Garnish with cheddar cheese or sour cream and green onions ... or all three! (For a heartier meal, add ground turkey to the saute`d onion and garlic. Once the turkey is cooked thoroughly, add the remaining ingredients as instructed.) Serves 8
