What do we love about our chilli con carne?

Herbs and spices are a great way of adding flavour to food, rather than using salt. Our chilli con carne recipe uses an array of exciting spices.

This dish is a great source of protein, which is needed in the diet for growth and muscle repair. Protein can be found in red kidney, borlotti, and black beans, red lentils, and minced beef in this dish.
