Chilli Con Carne

Posted: January 9, 2011 in Mince

I remember eating Chilli Con Carne as a child. My mum used to serve it with rice. As I had a surplus of mince I decided to revisit the meal and use up some kidney beans. It was very quick (being another slow cooked recipe). However I think I prefer my shredded taco beef. I served it with tortillas and a side salad. It needed a dollop of sour cream, however due to the Queensland floods our local IGA didn’t have any.
