    I’ve made this chilli time and time again and it’s always very tasty and a proper nice no messing chilli con carne. I never add sugar though but always add a small amount of dark chocolate as recommended in the tips. I always find it tastes even nicer the day after cooking if you can stop yourself from eating it all in one go! I also rarely add the red pepper as I never have them in and no one ever notices! Love the new look or think we’ve missed the mark? We want to hear your thoughts – good and bad – to make sure we make the new website as useful as possible.
