  • For an extra spicy kick, add some chopped fresh red or green chillies to the browned mince and onions.
  • Serve the Chilli Con Carne over nacho chips, with grated cheese and a dollop of sour cream.

This one's good. You can cook it anywhere - in a camp oven on the boat, in the shack in the bush... and it's warming in winter, easy in summer with the salad.

Easy to make, good value for money, add a bit of hot sauce with extra chillies to really spice it up and top it off with gaucomole and sour cream. Alternatively have it with nachos for a change - yummy!

I make this all the time in my slow cooker. It is great for nachos, tacos or even on toast. Makes generous servings and good value for money.
