Welcome to my EASY chilli con carne recipe. I think this easy chilli con carne should be re-branded as the ONE THING that a bachelor should serve up for their date.

  • In your one pot add the onion, celery, red pepper and garlic. Cook on a medium to high heat with your olive oil. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until your onion has a nice colour to it and your pepper has started to get soft.
  • Add the mince and mix well. Add the seasoning and carry on cooking until your mince is well cooked and brown throughout. This usually takes about 8 minutes.
  • Add the tinned tomatoes and kidney beans and cook for a further 5 minutes on a low to medium heat. This will also allow the juices to reduce and for you to have a lovely chilli con carne.
  • Serve!


If the chilli con carne is too thick add 150ml of beef stock before serving.
