Not a proper chilli con carne, as not much chilli in it (cooking for a family including a youngster)…. it was going to be a savoury mince, until I realised I had no potatoes… so I was looking in the pantry going “what goes with mince and rice? and a tin of kidney beans? and a jar of pasta sauce? hmm….” I’ve never actually had chilli con carne (I hate capsicum), So I started making it, then looked for a recipe online to see what spices to use.

some mince (no idea how much – 200g I think)
chopped spring onion
1 large garlic clove chopped
1 tin kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
1 jar of pasta sauce (I used Raguletto Bolognaise)
1 teaspoon cardamon
1/2 teaspoon corriander
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 ts curry powder
1 bacon stock cube
squirt of sweet chilli sauce
Sprinkle of pepper
1 carrot, finely grated

Rice to serve

Fry the mince, and drain to remove excess oil, add spring onion and garlic. Fry until garlic is soft. Add the other ingredients and simmer until the carrot is soft.

I put the rice in with the bean mix, but you can serve the bean mix on the rice.
