About this recipe: 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
