About this recipe: I often make a pan of chilli con carne, especially when it's cold out. You can of course refine the chlili according to your own tastes or use other spices. I serve usually only with bread and a mixed salad, though you can serve over white rice or a jacket potato.
Great recipe everything you need however when cooking the hamburger/mince drain off the excess water BEFORE you add the onions and garlic or your flavour will go down the drain. A pinch of sugar will give that extra zing along with garlic buttered toast of course. I use lean mince and include chopped celery with the onions - 12 Dec 2012

hubby's not a fan of prefab chilli so thought we'd try this one...tweaked it a bit but was THE most beautiful recipe and made enough for 4-5 big serves, enough to have leftovers for lunch the next day! Without the chillis and using only the powder and flakes, made a mild version...could easily add more (I'm a mild heat eater but could go warmer!). Would heartily recommend this one...doesn't leave you with heartburn like the prefab stuff does.....but does leave you wanting more! - 20 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
