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.
Made a few personal adjustments for taste, but easily one of the best chillis I've ever had - 24 Jun 2017
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
