This simple Chilli Con Carne recipe is even more delicious with the addition of chocolate.
Ingredients (serves 4 -6)
To make this you will need…
- 1 large onion, diced
- 500g mince meat
- 2 red capsicum peppers, deseeded and sliced
- 1 can red kidney beans
- 2 cans chopped tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- chilli powder or paprika (to your own taste)
- 80g dark chocolate (the darker, the better)
In a large frying pan, over a medium heat, cook the diced onion in a small amount of oil until transparent. Add the meat and cook until brown.
Add the sliced capsicum and cook until they have softened. Add the kidney beans, tomatoes and paste and stir to combine. Now add chilli powder and/or paprika, plus salt and pepper, to your own taste – you can make it as mild or as hot as you like.
Simmer over a low temperature for thirty minutes. Preheat oven to 150°C.
Stir chocolate through mix until melted and combined and place into the oven for an hour, stirring every twenty minutes.
