Midweek dinner recipe for the whole family – Chilli Con Carne
500g beef lean mince
250g streaky bacon, halved
1 onion, chopped
1 tin (410g) chopped tomato and onion
50g tomato paste
1 tin (410g) red kidney beans
1 ½ tablespoons chilli powder
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
In a large pot, heat oil up and fry the bacon first. Fry until the bacon is cooked but not crispy. Remove the bacon for now and set aside.
In the same oil, fry the onions on a medium to high heat.
Once the onions look glossy/translucent add in the chilli powder and garlic, stir to coat the onion.
Add in the mince, allow to brown and cook through. Stir occasionally allowing to break up the mince, so it is finer.
Once the mince has cooked through, pour in the tomato and onion mix, tomato paste, red kidney beans and bacon.
Stir occasionally and add in a pinch of salt; taste as you go along.
Allow to simmer for 20 – 30 minutes to thicken.
Serve with mash potato or rice.
