Easy Chilli Con Carne
I’ve been on a roll making 5 ingredient recipes. On today’s menu is Chilli con carne. Prior to this I whipped up 5 ingredient versions of butter chicken, cauliflower cheese and chicken Alfredo. Since chilli is one of my fav Keto meals I decided to make it. Chilli is just so easy to make, it’s great for meal prep as you can cook a big batch of it and it’s one pot cooking. That’s all my favourite things. So enough jibber jabber let’s cook!
Water buffalo or cow, does it matter?
Chilli is always best with beef in my humble opinion. However you can make this with any ground meat you like. Now I use beef but my beef is water buffalo meat. It tastes pretty much the same as cow meat does. I won’t get into the details but it’s sometimes also called Buff meat. Now in order to not confuse my large international audience I just say beef because who has time to explain the nuances of this meat madness. Anyway you can also make this with ground pork, lamb or chicken. It’s all good.
Where are the chillies?
Now I’ve never liked spicy food which is why I’ve always run away from the Jalapenos and other chillies. So it was inevitable that my chilli had no chillies. However you feel free to spice yours up with some hot peppers and chilli flakes and hot paprika etc. It’s pretty much your recipe to fool around it. So have fun.
