I have a tried and tested chilli con carne recipe but just wanted to add a little twist by adding three types of beans and I was really happy with the result and it was so darn tasty:)
700g Beef mince
3 medium red onions finely chopped
4 cloves garlic chopped
1 medium green pepper chopped
1 medium red pepper chopped
4 whole red chillis chopped with seeds
8 mushrooms sliced
1 big jar chopped tomatoes in juice
150g dried kidney beans
150g dried black eyed beans
150g dried white beans
2 tbsp chilli powder mild
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
4 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
First soak the beans the night before and rinse in clean fresh water
Boil the beans in salted water until you can mash with a fork(approx 1.5-2 hours)
Fry onion, garlic, pepper and mushrooms in oil until soft and clear.
Add mince and fry till brown.
Add spices and fry for a further five minutes.
Add tomatoes and water, stir for five minutes.
Add the beans
Cover and turn on a very low heat stirring occasionally.
Leave for as long as possible, 6 hours minimum.
At the end if you want it thicker you can mash a few of the beans down and it becomes much thicker.
Can be re-heated the next day to serve.
Serve with boiled rice or garlic bread or on its own.
Sprinkle with cheese and a dollop of sour cream for taste and decoration.
If anyone tries this recipe I hope you enjoy as much as me:)
