    Hi,

    Did anyone buy October's issue of Slimming world magazine. If they did could you possibly tell me the recipe for Chilli con carne that was in the little recipe book. I made some and froze it and now I seem have misplaced it. I don't know wot syns it is.

    cheers.

    Made this the other day and it was lovely. I was surprised by the cinnamon and have been using in other savoury dishes since.

    This is my all time fav slim world meal, I have this without fail every week but I add a chopped fresh green chilli at the mince frying stage for a good kick with a big handful of mushrooms !!

    I often do this when I make chilli too, the sauce from the beans really makes the chilli a bit richer.

    I love sw chilli! Hubby made a pot of it for tea last night, he didn't fancy it and he ended up having pizza. I was happy as I had a portion for tea and now got some for lunch with a jacket potato! Nomnomnom!!

    I always use the Heinz 5 Beans - they're a mixture of haricot (baked beans), pinto, canellini, bolotti and red kidney beans in the tomatoey sauce stuff. They help make a great chilli, and nice and rich too! Yummy - I know what I'm having for tea tonight :drool:

    Mmmm making this tonight as fancing a nice chili con carne. I did a chili chicken dinner earlier in week but added too much chilli powder and was bitter. So hoping for a nice classic chili con carne. Hopefully I haven't lost the knack.
