An easy wat to eat less meat.
When you fancy a chilli con carne but dont want to eat meat then this meatfree version recipe is just for you.
Easy and healthy, ready in just 15 minutes, make it perfect for busy weeknights!
Serve with a salad, nachos or rice. I am a big Quorn fan so i always keep a few bags of Quorn in my freezer to know i can have a Quorn Chilli, or Quorn curry when ever i want. If you don’t fancy Quorn, you could easily use beef mince in this recipe instead.
I’ve kept the chilli level quite mild so it’s great for kids but feel free to add more if you like your chilli con carne HOT!
