Last month was Mexican Independence Day and to celebrate it Discovery kindly sent me a hamper of Mexican ingredients and the challenge to create some food using it.
I love a good challenge and I also love Mexican food so I was more than happy to give this a try. I decided to start of with something easy and make Chilli Con Carne. I used this packet of Discovery Chilli Con Carne Seasoning Mix.
This is the recipe I used.
I served with rice and a dash of Discovery Green Jalapeno Relish.
The chilli was very tasty and not overpoweringly spicy. It had a pleasant kick to it without making your eyes water. You can use kidney beans instead of baked beans if you want to be a bit more authentic but then you should add a dash of tomato puree as well. Definitely a quick and easy dinner. I shall be trying something more adventurous soon.
