Andre's Chilli Con Carne

The secret to my Chilli Con Carne lies in the preparation of my own spice mix made with roasted oregano, paprika, cumin, nutmeg, coriander seeds and chilli powder. I then sauté onion and capsicum until caramelised which enriches the flavour of the chilli. I mash the mince, and combine the remaining ingredients including one which shall remain secret. This mix is left to simmer for a long time so all flavours combine and absorb to give you the ultimate, very more-ish Chilli Con Carne sensation!

My sister taught me how to make a basic chilli, using a ready made spice mix, before I went off to university many years ago. A good chilli in those days was a must-have staple in shared student houses, and the person who could make it well received many kudos. Apparently I made it well! Over the years I refined the recipe and constructed my own spice mix greatly encouraged by my kids and family

Was the scared of the Chilli at first taste but it was perfect.

I'm usually a little wary of chilli and although I love Mexican food, just do not cope well with strong chilli so was a little bit tentative at first. Absolutely no worries with this dish, it had the perfect blend of spice to give it some heat, but not bring tears to my eyes. A generous serving and all con carne, no rice. I only needed half of the dish and will use the rest tomorrow over a baked potato with sour cream and cheese. Would definitely order again.
