Tammy's Texas Chilli

Tammy Brownlow


I've been making this for years - I just never thought to write it down. Not too spicy - just a nice kick. So many amazing flavors are infused...chorizo, coffee, beer, 2 types of peppers and a great punch of tomato flavor. It's easy enough to make on a week night but special enough for the big game night. Enjoy this with tortilla chips, sour cream and sharp cheddar cheese...oh and don't forget your beer!
