Amber Ale Chili

After months of moving and unpacking I am back to focusing on Edesia Eats! I thought it would be painless but as many of you know moving is always a b***!!

This week I made a different version of chili using beer. While not as healthy as my pumpkin chili this chili was pretty darn tasty, and would be prefect to make for next weeks Superbowl party. What I love most about chili is that it is very comforting and filling with only 7WW+ points per serving. It also reheats well and tastes great after a few days in the fridge.

I was not able to take a picture of it the first time I ate it since I scarfed it down! The lefti's I had on top of a baked potato. This was incredibly healthy and filling. There are many chili recipes out there but this one is worth a try :)
