Chilli con carne ingredients.

My recipe for Chilli con Carne.

Chilli Con Carne.


  • 500 grams of minced beef.
  • 450 grams of kidney beans rinsed and drained (I prepared mine from dry beans the previous day).
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes, drained.

  • 1 tablespoon of chilli powder.
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.
  • 1 teaspoon of salt.

  1. Brown off the mince in a large pan over medium heat.  It should be crumbly and have no pink colour left.
  2. Discard the excess fat.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker, stir together and mix up before covering.
  4. Heat on low for 6 hours.
  5. When serving garnish with some grated cheese, any type will do I used parmesan as I had some available.
