Yummy yummy Chilli Con Carne

02 Oct

This is my recipe for chilli con carne.  It is a mixture of different recipes I have found and I have adapted it to my tastes.  I think it is absolutely fab but you will need to make it and taste it for yourself!  I had added a picture which can be seen here:

Servings: 3 large servings

Syns: 7 Syns

Syns per serving: 3 to be safe

Ingredients:

  • 225g extra lean minced beef
  • 2 medium onions sliced
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic sliced thinly
  • 1 chilli deseeded and chopped
  • 1 tin of tomato’s
  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree – 1 Syn
  • 1 small glass of red wine – 6 Syns
  • 1 beef oxo cube
  • A couple of splashes of worcestershire sauce
  • Chilli powder – to suit your tastes
  • A teaspoon of cumin powder
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Tin of kidney beans
  • Small wine glass of water

Method:

  • I always use a large knife to chop up the mince as I find this makes it more tender.  Do this until it is all mashed up
  • Fry the mince with the onion, chilli and garlic.  Once nearly browned crumble in the oxo cube
  • Once the mince is browned add the red wine and reduce down until half the volume
  • Then add all other ingredients minus the kidney beans
  • Cover and simmer for about an hour until the mince is really tender.  Keep an eye on it incase you need to add some water
  • Remove the cinnamon stick and add the kidney beans and simmer for about another 20 mins

I like to serve mine with homemade chips or wedges and some cheese sprinkled on top.  Just make sure you syn the cheese or use one of your healthy extras.

Enjoy!
