Heat rest of suet, garlic, and onions on the saucepan; saute above medium heat, while stirring constantly, till onions become translucent. Add cumin; cook for a minute above medium-low heat, stir constantly. Add chuck, pureed chili, powdered cocoa, oregano, tomatoes, and bay leaf; mix thoroughly.

Cover with small amount of water then let it boil. Once boiling, cover and let it simmer for two hours or more. Add more amount of water when needed keeping it covered. Season with salt then continue to simmer for one more hour, uncovered.

Remove the bay leaf. Place chili mixture on a hot bowl. Serve with sour cream, onion, cheese, chili peppers, chips, and beans.
