Mama Cooks: Chili Made with Coffee & Beer!


Here is a new series on Good Deal Mama, called Mama Cooks, because I hate cooking the same things over and over again and love experimenting with different recipes. So when the mood hits you’ll see a new recipe from Mama Cooks 🙂 Let me know if you like this!

This is definitely not your “normal” chili recipe, it uses coffee and beer but don’t be scared to try it, its delicious!   Don’t be afraid to NOT use all the ingredients listed, I didn’t have sirloin on hand or cumin, or even peppers for that matter. But my kids like things a little milder, so it worked out for me!
