Nothing wrong with a student classic, when you want to cook in advance and heat up. Things like chili con carne are so much better for an overnight in the fridge and reheating, (and if you make a HUGE vat, you can grab a bowlful and zap it in the microwave when you get home at some ungodly hour with the munchies.. but I digress. )
I am sure you all have your own chili con carne recipe? Do you need another one? Shout if you do!
