  • I love a good chilli. My friend makes an awesome one but I have never given it a go myself.


  • I’m pinching this one. A lot of chilli.con carne recipes end up so watery, this looks thick and rich


  • We love a good Chilli!


  • I love chilli and your recipe l can’t wait to try! Thanks!


  • Yum! this recipe looks super tasty. My family will definitely enjoy this.


  • This is a hearty dish, I usually serve with basmati rice. Yum! Thanks for sharing.


  • Certainly does look perfect for winter. You could use this so many ways.


  • Oh, chilli is great for winter! Thabks


  • Why do the kidney beans have to be washed? Are they in a brine solution used as a preservative? Definitely “hot”. I don’t think you would want to eat it in the warm weather.


  • I love how bright red this looks!


  • Sounds wonderful


  • So easy in the slow cooker !


  • Parts of this recipe are my spag bol sauce, so I could definitely rejig this for something different.


  • We love chilli’s ! Bit I make them vegetarian with more beans / lentils. Yum !


  • Thank you so much, this looks lovely.
