Today I am proud to present the world’s best chili con carne! It’s a recipe from Eric. He prepared it several times, when I was living in Constance. It’s the perfect dish after an exhausting clubbing weekend. The recipe is for 4 – 5 hungry people. It can be easily warmed up the next day or you store leftovers in the freezer.
