“This is one of my favourite recipes in the world! This chili con carne is not like eny other - This is packed with tons of flavor, and it have the perfect amount of spices. It's just spot on! (Even thought there's coffee in it, it's a 100% kids-friendly recipe. The coffee is just a healthier alternative for chocolate, because chocolate gives chili con carne alot of flavor, but coffee just gives it an even more delicius and intense flavor).”
