About this recipe: A simple, chilli con carne that will feed the family.
Something else. I made this in the slow cooker! Used exactly the same recipe (except i used mild chilli powder as i dont like it too hot.) I browned off the mince and set that aside, i then followed the recipe, adding the mince back to the mixture before putting it all in the slow cooker on high for six hours.

I did as Hobbit did (see other review) and used slow cooker on High for 6 hours once I'd browned the mince. Sometimes using a slow cooker you have to use less water but I added as per the recipe and it was about the right consistency in the end. Make sure you have a BIG pan/wok for this one though as it filled my largest frying pan to the brim before I'd even added all the tins. I'll use my massive wok next time, as an actor said to a bishop. As an unexpected bonus, I found that once you've spent ages chopping, mixing spices, frying stuff and stirring in the tins, the resulting sauce looks amazing if you liberally sprinkle a third of it all over your kitchen floor as it slides off the cooker hob in slow motion. And when I say 'amazing' I mean 'infuriating'! Saved most of it though and now I have a mopping the kitchen floor session to look forward to as well! Can't wait. Happy New Year me! Overall a tasty and simple recipe but I had to add a healthy dose of tobasco to warm it up a bit as it wasn't very spicy even using the hot chilli powder. I'd add another tsp at least next time, or just make sure to have tobasco on hand. Tweaks: Omitted celery, added water from bean tins as well (not clear above whether to do so or not), added a tbsp of tomato puree just to use up an old tube - 31 Dec 2016
