How to Make Traditional Chilli Con Carne

Chilli Con Carne is great for taco’s or burritos, on toast or on it’s own! Make a huge batch and freeze it for easy meals (a GREAT option for Once a Month Cooking!).

But the very best way to serve Chilli Con Carne is atop a baked potato and topped with loads of sour cream and cheese!


  1. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and fry up the chopped onion, garlic and mince.

  2. Cook until well browned.  Add the tomato soup and chili sauce.  Season to taste.

  3. Simmer gently for 15 - 20 minutes or until thickened.  Add undrained kidney beans and heat through.

  4. Serve the chilli con carne hot on boiled rice or toast or however you want - delish!

  5. Recipe is suitable to freeze.   Let the mixture cool down to nearly room temp and seal in ziplock bags. Mark the date on contents on the side and freeze for up to six months.
