About this recipe: A great meal for the family and good enough to serve at a dinner party. A good value healthy smoky chilli con carne recipe, perfect with boiled rice, or chips and salad. This recipe is for a large family (serves 6) - so scale down to suit. The smoky flavour really adds to the chilli, with lots of beans thrown in for the 'healthy eating' factor.
Works really well with a nice salad, and some crusty bread. Can be frozen, and always tastes better the longer you can cook it for. Great to eat the next day as leftovers.
Possibly one of the best chilli recipes I have made - spicy but not too hot with a nice smoky BBQ taste. Slightly tweaked the recipe by adding coca nib and cinnamon.. Otherwise a brill recipe - going to scale it up and make it for a ladies luncheon night.. - 12 Apr 2015
Really liked this recipe, seemed a lot of steps but was really easy to make. Family have asked if I can make it again next week ... - 08 Apr 2015
I cooked this chilli for an evening meal with friends, and it went down very well. I used chipotle chilli flakes because I could not find them whole. The smoky flavour adds an extra dimension that made a real difference. I added some extra tomato ketchup just to give it a bit more sweetness. A great chilli recipe ! - 15 Nov 2014
