Mexican Fiesta

November 10, 2016

When I think of Mexico, I see the bright colours of the ingredients, the smell the rich spices of chilli, oregano, the crisp corn chips with the creamy side dishes of guacamole and sour cream.

So, we have created our own recipe, with lots of meat, a rich sauce with spices and really easy and quick to make......


Chilli Con Carne


2 teaspoons olive oil

2 onions, finely chopped

4 garlic cloves, crushed

1 red chilli, chopped

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

750g lean beef mince

2 medium red capsicums, finely chopped

2 tablespoons chilli powder

800g can chopped tomatoes

400g can red kidney beans, drained, rinsed 

1 avocado

Lemon juice

Pickled jalapeno chillies

Light sour cream

Continental parsley

Grated light tasty cheese


Heat a large fry pan over medium heat. Add olive oil, onions, garlic, chilli, salt and pepper. Cook for 8 minutes or until the onions are soft. Add mince. Cook, stirring with a fork to break up the meat, for 10 minutes or until browned. 




Add beans. Cook for a further 10 minutes. To make guacamole, mash avocado with juice of 1/2 lemon. Serve chilli with pickled jalapeno chillies, light sour cream, coriander leaves and grated light tasty cheese. 


Serves 6.
