Chilli Con Carne

From Wikistix

Lazy, spicy and richer than the packet recipe. Double the spices, extra chilli.


  • olive oil
  • 10 birds eye chillies.
  • 800g beef mince.
  • 2 x 400g diced tomatoes.
  • 2 x 400g red kidney beans, rinsed & drained.
  • 4 x 35g packets taco seasoning mix.


Brown mince in an oiled large frying pan. Add finely chopped chillies and seasoning mix, cook and stir until fragrant.

Add tomatoes and 1 cup water, and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes. Add beans and simmer for a further 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in ½ cup coarsely chopped fresh coriander if desired.

Serve with your choice of warm tortillas, sour cream, rice, noodles or over boiled potatoes.
