Chilli Con Carne Recipe | #Syn #Free On #SlimmingWorld Minced beef in a spicy tomato sauce with chunky red peppers, onions and red kidney beans. Serve with rice or in a baked potato

This delicious syn free Chilli Con Carne has minced beef in a spicy tomato sauce with chunky red peppers, onions and red kidney beans. Serve with rice or in a baked potato with a side salad for extra speed.

 
 
I originally posted this recipe four years ago, yes that’s right, FOUR years ago! I can’t believe I have been blogging that long!  Recently I have been updating some of my older recipes, mostly because the images are awful but I have been making some tweaks to the recipes too.  I’ve been making them gluten/dairy free where I can, as well as making them Slimming World friendly.  Chilli Con Carne is such a classic dish and is so easy to make. Plus this one is syn free too!
 
This syn free Chilli Con Carne recipe gives 4 generous helpings.  Serve the chilli with some boiled rice or a baked potato and a side salad for extra speed. Other ways that you can use the Chilli is in tacos, burritos, nachos or if you fancy a spicy lasagne, use the mince as the meat filling.

      It is such a classic dish isn’t it? Good for the colder days ahead. It definitely has a lot more flavour with the extra spices in it, I used to just put chilli powder in but this is much better. Let me know if you give it a try 😊

      Thank you! ☺️ I’m sure it will work just as well with Quorn mince, I am going to do a Vegan one in a few weeks as well as I’ve got a load of veggies that I need to use!

  3. My hubby does pretty much all of the cooking whereas I can bake! But I’d love to give this a go because it does sound so simple. thanks for linking up to #AllSortsofBlogs
