Fakeaway Friday: Chilli Con Carne with Boiled Rice

My 10-year old always asks for this recipe and I am also glad he is starting to develop a taste for spicy foods (provided it's not too spicy or he gulps down litres of water :-/)

Today I will share the recipe for the Chilli con Carne with Boiled Rice: a beautiful Mexican recipe made from scratch the healthy way :-)

INGREDIENTS: serves 4 syn free on Extra Easy

  • 500 gr extra lean mince meat
  • 1 large red onion chopped
  • 2 large red peppers chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • pinch of chilli pepper
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 300 ml beef stock
  • 400 gr tin kidney beans


  • Spray a pan with Frylight (cooking spray). Add the garlic, red onion, and peppers and fry for a few minutes.
  • Add the mince and cook till brown.
  • Add the cumin, paprika and coriander and mix well to season the meat and vegetables.
  • Mix the stock, chopped tomatoes and kidney beans and simmer till thickened. Add some chilli pepper to taste if you like it spicy.
  • Serve with fried rice or if you are in the mood of real comfort food, serve with Slimming World chips. 
  • Follow with a naughty glass of wine :-)

Yummy comfort food without the guilt ;-)
