Chili Con Carne: To Hot To Handle?….Our Guide

If you would like to make a successful chilli con carne rather than a disaster here are a few tips to make it extra tasty and that innit:

1.    Cook it for a long time – the longer you cook it the more the flavour of the chillies get into the food. Makes it more spicy and I think more tasty.
2.    BOOZE – don’t just add any booze indiscriminately, I’m talking about wine. It doesn’t have to be an expensive wine but adding it does give a nice flavour. Add it early on and cook some of it off before you add you tomatoes.
3.    Adding Worchester sauce makes it taste amazing. You may call me crazy but I think you should try it. Add it in little bits to taste.
4.    Add some beef stock, just one Oxo cube will make it taste like an actually cow. Delicious.
5.    Always make too much, re-heating the next day you will find it tastes even better than the first time! Do make sure it’s piping hot all the way through though, stick a fork in the middle. If the end of the fork is hot when you pull it out it should be okay.
