So, today was the hottest day of the year and what do we eat? Chilli Con Carne, rice, homemade guacamole and garlic bread! ūü§£

My body does not have any of this “It’s too hot, I can not eat.” Nope, it knows when it is time to eat and it expects its fuel!

This recipe is from if you haven’t already I highly recommend you check out his recipes, he has some free ones. They are easy to follow and taste delicious.

One thing I do like to do with any curry or chilli, I like to make mine at least 1 day before as I feel they always taste better when left at least 1 night and reheated. That is just my personal preference.

  1. Heat a large pan over a medium heat and add the olive oil, onion, garlic and pepper and cook until the onion starts to become translucent.
  2. Throw the mince into the pan and break it up and cook until it‚Äôs been browned, this will take at least 5 –¬†¬†10 minutes
  3. Add all of the remaining ingredients, reduce the heat and simmer for 30 –¬†¬†40 minutes¬†until the sauce has thickened.
  4. Serve with rice and a little sour cream if you find it’s a tad too spicy for you.

As normal, all ingredients vary, this is a rough nutritional guide only…
