Chili Con Carne

Chili con carne is a traditional Spanish spicy stew which means chili pepper in meat sauce. I first came to know this dish from Kak Liza, she made this over a year ago. Apparently chili con carne is quite famous in Germany, people eat it with bread and make it as a dipping sauce for tortilla chips. KFC here has menu french fries topped with chili con carne.

I took recipe from Betty Crocker website:


500g ground beef
1 large onion - chopped
2 cloves garlic - crushed
1 tbs chili powder (add more if u like it hotter)
1/2 tsp salt (add more if u like it)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano leaves
1 tsp unsweetened baking cocoa ( I didn't use this)
1/2 tsp red pepper sauce (I used tabasco)
2 cups (1 can) diced tomato - undrained
1 cup red kidney beans - undrained

1. In a saucepan, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium heat about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown.
2. Stir remaining ingredients except beans. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
3. Stir in beans. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low, simmer uncovered about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until desired thickness.
