In a medium pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic, onion and bell pepper; cook, stirring, until softened, about 7 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high and stir in the chicken, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 4 minutes.
Add the chili powder, cumin, oregano, cocoa powder and salt; stir to coat. Add the tomatoes and their juices, chicken broth, pumpkin seeds and flaxseed meal and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, until slightly reduced, about 15 minutes. Stir in the beans and cook, uncovered, until the chili thickens slightly, about 10 minutes.
