    One of the best tasting chilli con carnes I have had in a long time. Really tasty. I should have doubled up on this recipe. There were no leftovers.

    I made this pretty much as posted except that I used a whole can of beans and used chili sauce for the tomato sauce. I ended up with a really tasty chili that made at least 4 servings. Made for ZWT7

    Used 1/2 lb ground beef (could use chicken for less fat) 1 can 14.5oz diced tomatoes, 1 whole can of mixed chili beans, 1tbsp chili powder. This turned out really delicious. Might add some red pepper to this. Thanks for Reposting this. Will let you know how the other 19 days go. :)

I'm married, I have 2 kids (both boys), and I live in Australia. I have loved cooking for as long as I can remember, and have become completely addicted to browsing through Zaar looking for new recipes! I have a small animal shelter for rabbits and guinea pigs, and spend most of my time looking after kids or critters!. My favourite cookbooks are The Essential Pasta Cookbook, The Central Cookery Book, Flo Bjielkie-Peterson's Country Cookbook, and Greek Cooking (I bought that one in Greece, and it's FANTASTIC). At the minute, we are getting ready to move, which is forcing me to sort through my recipe cabinet. I have been trying out all those recipes that are scribbled on pieces of paper, or torn from magazines, so I can decide ifthey are keepers or not. So far I've found a lot of keepers, and will work at posting them on here. I'm passionate about a lot of things, mainly my kids, animals, and cooking. I won't even start on my peeves, we'll be here all night! lol
