Chili -delicious and addictive

Charlie's Choice Chili Con Carne

Recipe submitted by Charlie on May 8th, 2011

It's easy to make chili with a good old packet chili seasoning mix, but I reckon there's something pretty satisfying about cooking from real ingredients. Once you've made your chili, there are heaps of primo ways to have it: nachos, tacos, enchiladas etc.. Just be sure to serve it with cheese, sour cream, salsa and guacamole. Leftovers (if you have any) go real well in toasties the next day - yum. Note: this recipe is pretty mild, if you wanna crank up the heat then add more chili!

Prep time:   20 minutes
Cook time:   1 hour
Servings:   5

2 tbsp oil
1 large onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
500gms beef mince
salt and pepper

1 tbsp cumin, ground
1 tbsp paprika, ground
1 tsp salt
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp cocoa
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp chili powder

2 tbsp tomato paste
1 can tomatoes, diced
1 can red kidney beans
1/2 cup corn

In large pot over medium to high heat, add oil, onions and garlic and cook until tender.
Add mince, season with salt and pepper and cook until browned.
Combine all spices / powders in small bowl then mix well into mince.
Cook for a minute or two then add the tomato paste, can tomatos, kidney beans and corn.
Reduce heat to low and bubble away for 1 hour or until the desired thickness is achieved.

      I searched on the ingredients of one of those famous kiwi packets hoping to find a recipe that matched in taste and ease, and found this recipe. After making it and trying it on the most harsh of judges (my toddlers) the verdict is, this is now the preferred meal!! The taste is similar, but better. Thanks for posting your recipe.
