I had a look at several recipes & couldn't decide which to use so I mixed & matched & came up with my own Chilli con Carne recipe.
Chilli Con Carne.
This made enough for six portions of chilly. I wouldn't say it is really hot as I prefer taste overheat but it will warm you up on a cold night. This chilli recipe is great with homemade chips or rice, I have tried it with both.
500 g of minced beef.
450 g of kidney beans rinsed and drained (I prepared mine from dry beans the previous day).
1 can of diced tomatoes, drained.
225 g of tomato sauce.
1 chopped red onion.
1 chopped green pepper.
1tsp of minced garlic.
1tbs of chilli powder.
1tsp of cayenne pepper.
1tsp of salt.
1tsp ground black pepper.
- Brown off the mince in a large pan over medium heat. It should be crumbly and have no pink colour left.
- Discard the excess fat.
- Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker, stir together and mix up before covering.
- Heat on low for 6 hours.
- When serving garnish with some grated cheese, any type will do I used parmesan as I had some available.
