How to make chilli con carne

0
Your rating: None
This is another one of my simple recipes that is good for a winter meal. Again it does not need any scales. It is another mince recipe which can go along way if you are on a tight budget.
What you'll need: 
Small pack of mince
Tin of chopped tomatoes
Tin of tomatoe puree
1 onion
A clove of garlic
Tin of red kidney beans
2 teaspoons of hot chilli powder
2 tablespoons of oil
A pinch of salt
1: 
Place a pan with the oil on the cooker. Then chop the onion and garlic and add to the pan. Cook until the contents are soft.
2: 
Open the mince and add in portions to the pan. Keep stirring to ensure that the mince browns easily and does not stick.
3: 
Add the tin of tomatoes to the pan. Add water to the tin and give it a swirl and add to the mixture to ensure you are not wasting any tomato. Add the can of red kidney beans and give the pan a good stir again. Then add the small tin of tomatoe puree. Pour a bit of water in this and use a teaspoon and mix the contents of the little can. As tomatoe puree is very thick it just needs a good stir to get out the remains.
4: 
Add the salt and chilli powder to taste. Bring to the boil and then simmer for about thirty five to fourty five minutes, giving it it a stir every so often to ensure that the chilli powder is mixed in.
5: 
It is now ready to serve. It can be served with boilled rice or a baked potato as a healthy option.
Conclusion: 
As you can see by the serving suggestions it can accompany most foods, so you can make a large batch and freeze it in portions to have another day. This makes it very economical.
Tips: 
Quorn mince can again be used as a substitute.
