Chilli Con Carne with Guacamole

A warming classic meal to gather the family around the table or enjoy as a two on a cold winter night.

A TRADITIONAL family meal that warms and fills. Except this is a little less than traditional.

This 'Chilli Con Carne' isn't only about the spicy tomato based meal, but the accompaniments that go along side it. It may not be a traditional dish or way to serve, but it certainly is delicious.

We also use cannelloni beans instead of red kidney beans, as they are just a preference of the household. They remind us of large baked beans.

I love to pack as much veg as I can into meals and this chilli is no exception. Making the rice with peas and sweetcorn and having the onion and peppers in the chilli. It's a great meal to get those vegetables into your day. Added with the healthy homemade guacamole to add those healthy fats from the avocado. It's a super healthy mid week meal.
