Recipe for Slow Cooker Chilli con Carne

Cook the perfect Chilli con Carne in your slow cooker with our simple recipe.

Chilli con Carne has a reputation for being very hot but it really is up to you and it depends entirely on how many chillies you add. One and a half chillies (seeds removed) should give the dish a little warmth and is probably suitable for kids and those who prefer a mild chilli. Two to three chillies will be good for most people, add one or two more if you prefer a hotter chilli con carne.

COOK'S NOTES FOR SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNE

There are lots of opinions on when to add the beans to the chilli, we prefer to add them towards the end of the cooking especially if you plan to freeze the meal. Adding the beans at the end of the cooking keeps them firm and adds texture.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1

Add the oil and minced beef to a large frying pan on a medium heat. Fry it for about seven minutes until the meat is browned. You will need to turn and stir the mince to break it up.

When the meat has browned add the hot stock, the fried mince (including the juices from the pan) and all the other ingredients, except the kidney beans, to your slow cooker on a high heat. Stir well and replace the lid.

STEP 2

Cook on high for one hour and then turn the slow cooker to low for 5 to 7 hours. Half an hour before the cooking has finished stir in the drained and rinsed kidney beans.

Serve on a bed of rice with some tortilla chips. It's also superb with a baked potato. Chilli con carne freezes very well and keeps for three months in the freezer.
