Sharing is caring!

Hello guys, I’d like to show you how to make chilli con carne in just 30 minutes including preparation time.

Recently after my zumba classes, I passed by one of my favorite butchers to buy minced meat. When I returned home, I decided to make chilli con carne, because (1) I had everything I needed to make it, (2) it was a cold snowy day and (3) it has been ages since I last ate it. So it was about time I prepare this quick and simple dish to warm me and my family up.

So if you’re looking for a dish for your next party or simply want to whip up chili in no time, then you have to try this inexpensive and simple chilli recipe, which is mainly using canned ingredients.

    • You can substitute minced meat with lentil and potatoes. So instead of 500 g meat, just use 250 g lentil and 250 g potatoes. Let me know how it goes.
