Chili Con Carne

Chili con carne (Chili with meat) is a spicy beef stew that is a red hot favorite with Texans. Now variations of this dish are enjoyed all over the world. The name is derived from the Spanish “chile con carne” which means peppers with meat. The classic version consists of chopped or ground beef along with chili peppers, garlic, onion and cumin. Other variations often include beans and tomatoes. The most popular types of chili (as it is usually called) are Texas- style chili (extremely spicy!), chili sin carne (vegetarian chili), white chili and chili verde (Mexican version).  The beauty of chili is that it can be eaten by itself or as a core ingredient in a number of other foods like pasta, burger or hot dog. You can enjoy your home-made chili dish with a variety of toppings like shredded chesse,  broken saltine crackers, commercial corn chips, Jalapeño cornbread, rolled-up corn tortillas or pork tamales. Whichever tickles your taste buds!




This easy fix dish is not only lip smackin’ good but renowned for its nutritional value. As a final flourish, you can garnish the chili with a few coriander leaves and dig in!
