  1. Paulene, is the only reason for deseeding the chillie to keep the heat down? I always use full chopped chillies so if I want it a bit hotter it’s just a case if not deseeding them?
    This looks really good…..next weekends task!

  2. Sooooo delicious! Tweaked the recipe a little to suit my tastes and what I had at home. But Yum!! I served with brown rice, sweet potato nachos, homemade quacamole, salad, cheese and sour cream! Proper feast!!

  3. This is actually the best Chilli Con Carne recipe, its not hot so if you like it hot add some more Chilli or leave the seeds.

    MY FAMILY SAID IT WAS THE BEST RECIPE I HAVE EVER COOKED.

  4. Hi can you use topside beef roast? I’ve tried chuck and blade in other slow cooked recipes and they come out chewy.

    Thanks
    Lou

  5. We love this recipe. It is not hot so perfect for my family who don’t like heat in their food. We use this regularly for nachos as it’s my teen son’s favourite recipe for nachos.
