Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat and cook the onions until soft, then add the garlic and cook for a few minutes. Tip in the beef and pork, and brown, using the side of the spoon to break the mince down.
Just before the meat is completely browned, add the cocoa and spices, and stir well. Mix in the peppers, season generously, then add in the marrow bone, bay leaves, chillies, chopped tomatoes and 1 litre of just-boiled water. Turn the heat to low and simmer gently for 3-4 hours. The longer it cooks, the better it will taste. Stir through the drained beans for the final 30 minutes of cooking.
Scrape out any remaining marrow and discard the bones. Serve with rice or crusty bread, and sprinkle each portion of chilli with grated cheddar and a little raw onion.
