Chilli Con Carne – Slimming World Style!

February 26, 2015

I love Chilli con Carne… my family not so much but seeing as I am the cook in the house it’s Chilli for dinner tonight!

This is simple and very tasty. In the kitchen you will need:

  • Frying pan
  • Sauce pan

Ingredients include:

Chilli con Carne Ingerdients

  • 1.5lbs of 5% fat minced beef
  • 1 x red pepper
  • 1 x onion
  • 2 x cloves of garlic
  • 2 x tsp of cumin powder (I add more but adjust to your taste)
  • 1 x beef stock cube
  • 1 x tsp of chilli flakes – add more or chop up real chilli peppers if you like it spicy
  • 1 x tin of kidney beans
  • 2 x tins of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 x tblsp of tomato puree
  • 2 x tblsp of Worchester Sauce (I didn’t have any so used Balsamic)

Let’s get cooking…

  1. Spray your frying pan with a good bit of Fry Light.
  2. Add your chopped onion and garlic.
  3. Once onion is softened then add your mince and cook till it’s brown.
  4. Then add two tins of tomatoes, tomato puree, cumin, chilli flakes, crumble your beef stock into it and add your worchester – or balsamic in my case!
  5. Cook for 25 mins on a low heat.
  6. Add the chopped peppers, kidney beans (drain the water they come in first) and cook for a remaining 10 mins.

Serve with rice or a baked potato and a blob of natural yogurt with a sprinkle of paprika on top. And it wouldn’t be chilli without a sprinkling of cheddar cheese (30g is your healthy extra A for the day)

This freezes really well and also tastes great heated up the next day for lunch.
