"I was given 'Happy Days With The Naked Chef' and found that I enjoy Jamies style, he can be relied on for sensible recipes that work. I decided to try his Chilli Con Carne for my son and husband one weekend when the girls were away. Good comfort food, served over rice, DH found this spicy while I thought it could be pepped up a little more (sometimes I surprise myself!!).... adjust for your own taste! Jamie recommends chuck steak, minced, but I used ground beef that I had in the freezer. I don't think the sun-dried tomatoes are traditional, but they are a nice touch! This dish is ideal for make-ahead, and definitely tastes even better the next day!"

"My family absolutely loved this chili recipe. It was different than most, mild enough for the little ones, and had a great depth of flavor for the adults. I cheated by using a jar on sundried tomato pesto I had on hand, and by only cooking it for an hour. I bet it will be even better reheated as leftovers! It was delicious!"
"I prepared this hearty dish for Recipe Swap #36. It was a real hit with my family and very easy to put together. I simmered it in the crockpot and waited, like you instructed, to add the beans until near dinner time. Served this one-dish-meal with crackers and we darn near ate the entire pot. It was very yummy on a cold winter day."
"Second time of cooking this dish, fabulous everytime - it is afterall Jamlie Oliver!! Like reviewer Noo I motted the sundried tomatoes, and used sundried tomato paste instead just because we do not have dried tomatoes. This is a superb dish and yes load it up with cheese on top at the end, so tasty, a firm family favourite in our household now. Thanks for sharing."
"A pretty pukka recipe from the 'mockney' boy. I had to omit the sundried tomatoes under instruction from DH,so added some tomato paste instead. This was flavoursome and nicely spiced (I too could use a little more though!). A nice and easy dish to prepare,that we enjoyed with some grated cheese on the top,guacamole on the side and nachos for loading everything on to. Thanks Karen Elizabeth!"
