O I like the idea of lager in a chilli- how fantastic! This vegetarian chocolate and black bean chilli is a winner in our house.

I like the one from the Usborne cookbook for boys. I like it even more when DS cooks it for me smile

Mine is a veggie one involving green, red and puy lentils, chocolate, chipotle paste, coffee, lime, barbecue sauce (the JD one) and lager amongst other things. It's bloomin gorgeous.

Must be eaten with homemade guacamole (no tomatoes) and/or mango salsa, plus soured cream and grated cheese.

Bumping this thread cos a friend introduced me to chili con carne con queso.

Basically you make chile con queso and swirl it into chili con carne. Make sure you don't use tomato sauce in your chili con carne though else it will curdle. I also add half a jar of jalapenos to this recipe.
