In a large pot, add oregano, paprika, chili powder, cumin, beef broth, and wine. Let simmer.

In a separate skillet, brown 1 1/2 lbs. meat at a time until meat is light brown. Drain and add to simmering spices. Continue browning process until all meat has been added to spices.

Saute onions and garlic in one tablespoon oil or suet. Add to spices and meat mixture. (Mixture should be thick enough so that a spoon would stand in it. For thinner mixture, add water at personal discretion.) Simmer two hours.

Add cocoa, sugar, coriander, hot sauce, tomato sauce and simmer another 45 minutes.
