About this recipe: This isn't your usual chilli con carne. Black beans and turkey mince make for a delicious twist on the classic. This hearty soup is an easy - and healthy - way to feed a crowd, and also freezes well. Top with grated Cheddar.
Black turtle beans, or simply 'black beans' for short, are especially common in Latin American cuisine. High in fibre and packed with nutrients, they're a healthy addition to any dish. If you can't find tinned black beans, use dried.
I made this today and didn't like it. Didn't like the black beans not for me. However, I gave to my sister and she enjoyed it. - 07 Nov 2010
Couldn't find black beans so I substituted with taco beans and added little extra chilli powder along with a chicken stock pot. It went down a storm and will become a new regular! - 18 Mar 2014
Good recipe, I tweaked it a little, added fresh green chilli, smoked paprika, two tablespoons of barbeque sauce, red bell pepper and used 50/50 black bean and black-eyed beans, we're not lovers of kidney beans and this was so much better. - 04 Jan 2014
