Method

Dads Chili Con Carne is a community recipe submitted by Hayles and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Heat oil in a pan, add chopped onions and garlic. Once cooked, add the mince and cook through.
  • Drain fat from the pan, then add the tinned tomatoes, tomato puree and oxo-bovril water.
  • Drain and rinse the tinned kidney beans, then add to the mince mixture. Once kidney beans are cooked, add chili sauce, salt and pepper and spices.
  • I have not given amounts for spices and chili sauce as I add small amounts gradually and build up the flavour by tasting after each addition. It's all about your individual taste.
  • Once you are happy with the taste, serve with rice, jacket potato etc.. and garnish with some coriander.
