Chilli Con Carne

Servings 4 people


  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic
  • 1 Pepper
  • 1 Onion
  • 500 g Mince
  • 3 tbsp Tomato Puree
  • 1 Can of Crush Tomatoes
  • 1 Tin of Kidney Beans
  • 2 Stock Cubes
  • 400 ml Water
  • 1 Chilli Mix


  • 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 mince. Cook, breaking it up as you go, until mostly browned.
  • Add Chili Spice Mix. Cook until mince is browned all over. (This step helps release extra flavour from the spices)
  • Add remaining ingredients, with 1/2 of water for Quick Cook or 3/4 of the water for Slow Cook. Bring to simmer, then adjust heat per step below:
  • Quick Cook - 20 to 40 minutes, uncovered, on medium low heat so it's bubbling gently;
    Slow Cook - 1.5 hours to 2 hours, covered, on low heat so it's bubbling very gently.
