Beef Chilli Con Carne cooked the Mexican way. Wholesome and hearty dish to be served with freshly made tortilla.

This recipe of Beef Chilli Con Carne is contemporary, easy and simply delicious. This is one of my favorite recipes. The combination of flavors are simple yet memorable. Simple ingredients that have been delicately prepared for enhanced flavors. you will find out what I mean.


This is a perfect party or family idea of fun dinner…. make-yourself-a-taco dinner party kind of things. It is interactive and fun. I haven’t met anyone that doesn’t like this recipe of Beef Chilli Con Carne.

So as for the ingredients – I cook with most of my ingredients on offer at the Spice Library Online Shop. I will never go without these ingredients in my pantry. I use them in so many dishes – not necessarily all Mexican.

Smoked Paprika (70g) Anchos Chilli/Chile (50g) Mexican Oregano


{ Cooking Tip } Smoke or Kebab the Anchos, Garlic & tomato by simply placing them over an open flame to charcoal the skin. This will give the ingredients a nice smoky and intense flavor. This is crucial to overall flavor of the dish.

-1 tbsp Mexican oregano
– 2tsp ground cumin
Р550g beef  (the more marble in the beef the better it is)

In a heavy based casserole dish layer the ingredients; first goes in the beef, smoked paprika, garlic, tomato, anchos, Mexican oregano and seasoning, then the stock. cook in the oven @150c for 3-4 hour. Check the liquid level half way through cooking to ensure enough moisture. Add water if required.
