This is truly an amazing chilli con carne. The recipe gets its trademark by the addition of coffee and dark beer. Don't be afraid to try this! Freeze in batches with great success.
Absolutely superb! I substituted a tin of baked beans instead of kidney bean, just because that was all I had, and it worked just fine. The longer it's simmered the better. Great recipe, well done! - 13 Mar 2013
Made in the slow cooker....best Chilli we have ever tasted!!!....Tasted even better the next day. No more cook in sauces in this house. - 27 Apr 2016
Chilli is by far my favourite meal, always has been. I was a bit sceptical about beer, chocoloate and coffee as an ingredient for chilli. I did replace one of the tins of kidney beans to baked beans and took out the coriander as some in the family simply dont like coriander, but WOW! the flavour of this chilli was so intense, a nice bit of heat from the Cayenne pepper and chillies, but not so hot that you are rushing for a drink, just a nice gentle kick ! Loved it, absolutely loved it. Fed a crowd of six (who ALL went for second helping!!) an absolute winner! - 04 May 2017
