Share to Your Friends!

Chili Con Carne is one of the winter staple dish. You can cook this in a big batch and then bag them for freezing. Then you can just take them out whenever you need a quick fix and reheat in the oven or microwave. It is very good with chips or rice, topped with grated cheese, and served with a big salad.

Chili Con Carne Recipe


  • 1kilo pounds ground beef chuck
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • salt
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 ½ cup IPA beer
  • 1 ½ -ounce can whole tomatoes, crushed by hand
  • 1 ½ cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 2 ½ -ounce cans black beans, drained and rinsed (unsalted)
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 5 sili labuyo (minced)
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, sliced scallions and/or sour cream, for topping (optional)

Cooking Instructions:

  1. In a large saucepan heat to medium high, add the beef and cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate using a slotted spoon; wipe out the pan.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in the saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and 1 teaspoon salt and cook 2 minutes. Add the chili powder, sili labuyo, oregano and tomato paste and cook, stirring, until the tomato paste is brick red, about 6 minutes (add a splash of water if the mixture begins to stick). Add the beer and simmer until almost completely reduced, about 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in the beef and any juices from the plate, tomatoes, beef broth and beans and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chili thickens slightly, about 1 hour, 30 minutes.
  4. Stir the hot sauce into the chili and season with salt. Add some beef broth if the chili is too thick. Cheese, scallions and/or sour cream.
