Description

Fast Prep, Big Flavours

This is my classic Chilli Con Carne recipe (known as Chili in the States). This is not a die-hard classic Texan recipe which is made with rehydrated dried chillis, cubed beef, no beans and no canned tomato and takes considerable time to make and tastes quite different. This is the more common type of Chili that most people are familiar with. A classic Chilli Con Carne that is easy and fast enough to make for midweek that is mildly spicy - feel free to increase the spiciness. Freezes great and tastes even better the next day. See Notes for ideas for how to serve this!

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 onion, diced (brown, white, yellow)
  • 1 red capsicum (bell pepper), diced
  • 1lb / 500g ground beef (mince)
  • 1 - 2 tsp cayenne pepper or chilli powder (adjust spiciness to taste) (Note 1)
  • 2 tsp paprika powder (smokey or normal, not sweet)
  • 1½ tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (or onion powder)
  • 1 beef bouillon cube, crumbled (Note 2)
  • ½ tsp sugar (any type)
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste (puree)
  • 14oz / 420g can crushed tomato
  • 14oz / 420g can red kidney beans, drained
  • ½ - ¾ cup water
  • Salt and pepper
  • White rice
  • Sour cream

Directions

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and onion, cook for 1 minute, then add capsicum and cook for 2 minutes until onion is translucent.
  • Turn heat up to high and add beef. Cook, breaking it up as you go, until mostly browned.
  • Add cayenne pepper, cumin, paprika and garlic powder. Cook until beef is browned all over. (This step helps release extra flavour from the spices)
  • Add remaining ingredients (start with ½ cup water). Bring to simmer then turn down to medium to simmer gently.
  • Cook for at least 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens. It can be cooked for up to 1 hour for really tender meat and a deeper, richer flavour (lid on, top up water as required).
  • Adjust salt and pepper to taste just before serving.
  • Serve with white rice and a dollop of sour cream (See note 3 for other serving suggestions)
