thermomix chilli con carne recipe 1 After doing a little survey on my Facebook Page about what recipes my readers would love to see on here, there was an overwhelming response for just one thing………DINNERS!!

Having to cook dinners for the family every single night can be so boring, especially when you’re constantly trying to think of new things to cook.  Kids get bored too and if they’re anything like mine they are not backwards about coming forwards about it.

I’ve also been in a bit of a ‘dinner rut’ recently, so I’ve decided to try and make one (or two if I’m feeling energetic) new recipes every week and I promise to share it with you.

Tonight we are having Chilli Con Carne and it’s really yummy (as well as super easy to make). It freezers well too.

A hearty and delicious chilli con carne that is best served with some fluffy rice.
Recipe type: Main Meal
Serves: 6
  • 1 red capsicum
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 sticks of celery
  • 10g olive oil
  • 500g mince
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp chilli powder/flakes (or fresh)
  • 1 tin kidney beans
  • 1 tin chick peas
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbs veggie stock paste
  • 1 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 50g tomato paste
  • black pepper
  1. Chop the onion and garlic for 5 seconds on speed 5.
  2. Add the oil and saute for 3 mins on 100 degrees, speed 1.
  3. Add the carrots, capsicum and celery and chop for 3 seconds on speed 5.
  4. Add the cumin, chilli flakes, cinnamon and black pepper and cook on reverse speed soft for 5 mins at 100 degrees.
  5. Add the kidney beans, tomatoes, tomato paste, chickpeas, balsamic vinegar and stock and mix on reverse speed 1 for 30 seconds.
  6. Add the mince and cook for 25 mins on reverse speed soft at 100 degrees.
  7. Serve with rice and a dollop of plain yoghurt.
I would advice you halve the chilli if cooking this for children as it can be a little spicy. This recipe is freezable.
If there are any recipes you’d like me to tackle, then just give me yell.  I’m always up for a challenge.

    I hear you Robyn, our 3 kidlets are always asking me ‘what’s for dinner’ and if I tell them something they don’t like the sound of they definitely let me know about it!
    Loving the looks of your chilli con carne, thanks for the dinner inspiration and thanks for linking up with our Fabulous Foodie Fridays Party! have a beautiful weekend x

      Don’t you just love how willing they are to tell you when they don’t like something. Us mums have to have thick skin at dinner times, hahaha (oh and patience too) x

    All about the dinner recipes! I like that you have got chickpeas in this – will definitely give it a go.

    How good is chilli con carne!
    So yum, full,of flavour I’ll do it with rice & serve corn chips on side and save any leftovers for a lunch for me and mum. We put it on a huge jacket baked potato… Yum.
    I love changing it up for dinner to, so easy to get into a rut with same same. The annoying thing is my youngest prefers the meat & 3 vege (or 2 veg really) where as the rest of us love a change up… Juggling everyone’s wants is not an easy feat for my hey.

    I’ve made this twice in two weeks now.
    It is so beautiful & a hit with everyone.
    The first time I served it with rice. The second time I served it over corn chips & made nacho’s.
    I’m looking forwards to trying alot more of your recipes 🙂

      April 18, 2015 at 6:08 am (2 years ago)

      Oh yay that makes me so happy!! I’ve never thought of doing it with nacho’s – must try that next. Thanks xxx

    We are vegetarian, do you suppose it would work without the mince and increased chickpeas and kidney beans?

    Made this tonight for our hungry mob.
    Went out to tractors for harvest tea in WA
    Served with handful of corn chips sour cream and avocado and broccoli
    Felt like a Mexican fiesta!!

    It’s a winner!! Two rice and curry hating boys loved this, I left out the chilli as even mild is too spicy for them! I didn’t have cumin so I substituted some ground coriander, paprika and caraway. Totally delish, thanks for sharing 🙂

      Whoops this comment should have been on the veggie version

      January 15, 2016 at 3:28 pm (1 year ago)

      Woo Hoo, I love hearing feedback like this. Thanks so much for letting me know. I love your substitutes too :))

    Great recipe! My 19 months old son loved it and this is the recipe that made me share your website with my Mothers Group!
    How just love your easy dinner recipes as I work 4 days a week so not much time for cooking! 🙂

      February 24, 2016 at 1:58 pm (1 year ago)

      Oh thanks SO much Lea, you’ve just made my day. That is such an old post too, I think I need to put together a new one, as I’m in the same boat as you and the easier we can make dinner times the better. Have a great day xx

    I make this about once a week in our house, for my 2 year old & husband & both devour it. I love that you can hide whatever veggies you have on hand (eg. zucchini, broccoli). It’s a always a winner & plates are always empty. Thanks so much for this recipe. 🙂

    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I made this tonight replacing kidney beans for a can of baked beans and instead of white rice made cauliflower rice so delicious and a big hit with the family. Will be adding into my book to make regularly. x

    Hi.. Looks awesome!! I’m going to try this tonight.. What can I substitute the veggie stock paste with, as I don’t have any on hand?

    Hi would this still be nice with chicken or turkey mince & would the cook time/temp differ at all please? I’ve made this with beef mince & it was much loved but I’d prefer to avoid red meat.
