This well-flavoured chilli may take over 4 hours to cook, but the results are really worth it. Serve with rice, tortilla chips, corn bread or over jacket potatoes.
If it tastes too spicy at the beginning of cooking, don't panic, the heat mellows out and is absorbed into the beans. Always best the next day.
This chilli can easily be made in a slow cooker. Brown meat and onions on the hob first, then add all ingredients into the slow cooker, stir and cook on high 3 hours and low another 5-7 hours.
I have made this countless times and i cannot recommend enough!! I also add 500grms of stewing steak - 11 May 2013

Now that is a chilli! HOT! Well worth the 4 hours plus cooking time. The flavour is lovely. Go to the butchers and ask for some of the better quality lean minced beef they do. Works well with half minced beef and half flank/stewing/chuck steak cut up into mouth sized chunks NOT minced! Tremendous. - 06 Dec 2010
