Method

  1. Heat a dash of oil in a heavy based saucepan. Quickly brown mince with the onion.
  2. Reduce heat and add Wattie’s Mexican Creations Chilli Con Carne Simmer Sauce, Wattie’s Red Kidney Beans in Springwater and green capsicum. Simmer for 20-25 minutes, until mince is cooked. 5 minutes before the end of cooking add 1 cup of Wattie’s Creations Mexican Style Frozen Vegetables (if using).
  3. Serve over steamed rice. Garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves.
Tip!

  • Alternatively cook in a slow cooker on low heat for 4 hours, or in an oven-proof dish at 160°C for 2 hours, adding beans ½ hour before the end of cooking and frozen vegetables 10 minutes before the end.
  • For an extra spicy kick, add some chopped fresh red or green chillies to the browned mince and onions.
  • Serve the Chilli Con Carne over nacho chips, with grated cheese and a dollop of sour cream.
