A quick and easy version of chilli con carne.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 500 grams beef mince
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon crushed or minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 can tomatoes with the juice
  • 1 can red kidney beans
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder (more if you want hotter chilli)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley


  1. Fry the onion and garlic for a couple of minutes.
  2. Add the mince and cook until well browned.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and stir. Once boiling reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes stirring occasionally.


I used to have this a lot when I was trying to loose weight as it is around 300 calories per serve. Great with rice or on tacos.

  • I have recently rediscovered this gem. The one I cooked recently was much redder and less runny then this one in the pic tho


  • A big bowl of chilli con carne with sour cream and a big bowl of crispy tortilla chips and I am always set for a super tasty and terrific night in at home.

  • A good dollop of sour cream at the end would set this off
