Chili Con Carne
If you don't know she cooks, now you know.
What's not to love about Mexican goodness for you and the entire family to enjoy for multiple meals?!
My mother taught me how to cook this when I moved out of her home, as chili con carne has always been my favorite "family food". We used to eat this with bread and small soft tacos like these. A recent favorite is to use it as a substitute for grilled meat when making burritos. It's the perfect soul food for when you're having people over, or if you don't feel like cooking for the next 2 days.
1 KG of Minced meat
1 Can of Sun dried tomatoes
2 Cans of whole tomatoes
2 Cans of Kidney Beans
3 Red Onions
6 Cloves of Garlic
1 Cinnamon stick
1 Chili Pepper
Let's get to it!
Use a blender to chop and blend the onions and garlic into a paste.
Heat up the casserole with a little olive oil and fry the paste for a minute. Now blend the sun dried tomatoes and add to the pan together with the minced meat, fry until brown.
Add the cans of whole tomatoes, and "chop" them with your spoon as you stir them through the mixture. Lastly, throw in a little salt, pepper, comin, chopped red pepper, and a cinnamon stick.
Let this cook on low fire for at least 45 - 60 minutes.
10 minutes before serving, add the kidney beans and stir.
Serve this with bread or (soft) tacos, guacamole, sour cream and cilantro.
