Chilli Con Carne

If you CBF cooking tonight then this Chilli Con Carne recipe is for you, unless you’re vegetarian then it isn’t, Soz. This one pot recipe is quick and adaptable for kids. I always have the ingredients in my pantry so come 4pm if I’ve forgotten to organise dinner I can quickly defrost the mince and cook, even when I CBF Cooking. What are your go to easy dinner ideas?

Chilli Con Carne Recipe



  • 500g Premium Beef Mince
  • 1x can red kidney beans (drained & rinsed)
  • 1x can of tinned tomatoes
  • Microwave black or brown rice
  • Chilli Con carne spice sachet (or just add salt, pepper, chilli flakes & italian herbs)
  • Sour cream
  • Corn chips


  1. Brown the mince in a large non stick pot.
  2. Chuck the rinsed kidney beans in.
  3. Add tomatoes and combine.
  4. Mix in spice sachet then leave to simmer until mince cooked.
  5. Microwave rice according to instructions or if you really CBF just add straight to the pot.
  6. Chuck it all in a bowl, smother with sour cream and serve with corn chips.


  • Add microwaved broccoli as a side if you’re concerned about scurvy.
  • Substitute rice for grated cauliflower or spiral zucchini to increase your veg intake.
  • If you CAN CBF cooking then my Chilli Con Queso dip makes an awesome appetizer.
  • Add Coriander if you’re feeling fancy AF.


  • 7 months: Puree mince with a few kidney beans & sweet potato (cut up small bits of sweet potato and microwave for 3 minutes).
  • 8 months plus: Mash mince, kidney beans & sweet potato.


Double the ingredients so you can use the leftovers the next day for another dinner:

  • Nachos
  • Tacos
  • Burritos
  • Enchiladas
  • Quesadillas
  • Toasted sandwiches
  • Gozleme

    I love this – so quick and simple and so much better than a can of soup (my go-to when I cbf cooking!)
    Thanks for linking up to #AnythingGoes :)
