Chili Con Carne is a gorgeous Mexican dish that hits the spot. All of the flavours combine to create a dish that everybody enjoys. The effect starts as you walk into the kitchen and get a hit of the aroma. You can makes this in advance and leave in the fridge for a day or two. Gently warm when needed. Serve with rice, crackers, homemade guacamole and a green salad. I also bake a garlic baguette to wipe the dish clean. You can change the amount of chillies to reduce the heat level to your tastes. One of those recipes that every home cook should have in their repertoire.
