My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne, that requires NO pre browning of the meat.

It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make', before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese!

If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some crème fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake.

Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNE


    1. If your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out), add another tin for extra fibre. You could always try adding a tin of baked beans too.
    2. Instead of adding the spices separately, you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.
    3. If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chilli flakes. If you're serving it for children, you could always add some chilli sauce to your own portion once served.
    4. Up the veggies by adding a chopped red pepper and courgette. A tin of sweetcorn would work well too.
    5. I like to serve my chilli with rice, tortilla chips, grated cheese and sour cream. Guacamole or even a fresh sliced avocado would make it extra special.

      BENEFITS OF SLOW COOKER COOKING


      Slow Cookers are a great way of tenderising cheaper cuts of meat like brisket, chicken thighs and lamb shoulder, but they are also really economical to run, using much less electricity than a conventional oven or microwave.

      For many recipes, like this one, you can just chuck everything in and set it going, saving lots of time on preparation too.

      I have two slow cookers, a large 6 litre one which I use for whole chickens and joints of meat, and a smaller 3.5 litre slow cooker, which I use to make chilli's and casseroles.

      3. Yum! This looks great, I do love a good slow cooker recipe! The Peachicks are split on the kidney bean issue - 1 does, 1 doesn't & 1 will eat them if she doesn't find them! LOL!

      4. Hi Beth, love this. Would you like to share this with the other participants in Food on Friday over at Carole's Chatter? I have a weekly link up party – each week there is a different ingredient or theme. The current theme is Beef!

        You can see upcoming themes in one of the pages at the top of my home page. If you would like to join in the fun please schedule a reminder for each week. The collection starts at 7am Friday New Zealand time – which might be some time Thursday your time – I do find time zones quite confusing. Hope to see you soon. Cheers, Carole
