Brew Chocolate Beef Chilli With Salsa

Serves 8 Prep Time 20 minutes   Cook Time 1 hours   Rated:

Chilli, bacon, chocolate and beer? What could be a better combination for a cold winter night? Ale and chocolate add a rich earthy undertone reminiscent of a hearty Mexican mole ... that takes days to prepare. Bacon adds a smokiness. Get the same depth of flavour with the Thermomix in a fraction of the time. A dollop of fresh salsa on top adds a burst of brightness. Serve over steamed rice. Ole'!
