Serious Chilli Con Carne

    1 hour 40 minutes

    Yes this is hot but I like chillies. This tastes even better the next day so is ok to leave in the fridge if it doesn't get eaten all in one go. It also makes a good nachos or taco sauce.

    This recipe was good for the sheer spiciness of the dish but in my opinion need a bit a tweaking to add a little bit more flavour. Not for the faint hearted!  -  26 Sep 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
