Chilli con carne

Chilli con carne

This is the ultimate midweek meal – tasty, filling and quick to make. Experiment with different toppings such as cheese, guacamole, sour cream, sweet chilli sauce or a fresh homemade salsa.


Chilli con carne

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 500 g beef mince
  • 1 can peeled, chopped tomatoes
  • 1 can chilli beans
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • fluffy white rice, to serve
  • sour cream, to serve
  • 1.5 avocados
  • 1 chilli or red pepper, finely diced
  • chilli seasoning


  1. In a heavy-based frying pan, heat the oil and saute the onion, garlic, smoked paprika and mince until lightly browned and fragrant. Add the canned tomatoes, beans and barbecue sauce and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the mixture is thick and saucy. Thin with a little water if the mix becomes too thick.
  2. Serve with rice and top the bowls with sour cream and a rustic salad of sliced avocado, chilli or pepper and a pinch of spice, if you like.
