Warming chilli con carne 5 0 5 1

A lovely warming chilli, rich in flavour but not too spicy. You can easily add diced vegetables if desired - I just kept this as 'bit' free as possible for my children.

I loved how quick and easy it was to prepare. The meal was very filling, not too spicy, and delicious. I added some frozen veggies. It also was nice as leftovers on a cold night shift. Will be making this again.
