  • About

Originally from Texas and Mexico, Chilli con Carne is now eaten throughout the United States, no doubt because it is such a tasty economical dish and can be ‘stretched’ by adding more beans. With long, slow simmering the beef and beans turn into a fragrant, brown, spicy stew, always popular with the young. It goes well with a green salad.
