Chillin with Chili Con Carne

Few months ago, every time I wanted to make this meal I always choose the easy way.. the almighty awesome store pack Chili Con Carne instant powder. It’s easy, it’s delicious, what else can a girl ask for, right? But that was then.. this time my friends.. this time I managed to make it from scratch… with my very own recipe, now how cool is that? *muhaha*


  • 600 gr minced meat
  • 1 onion – diced
  • 1 can of baked beans in tomato sauce
  • 1 can of kidney beans
  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes
  • 3-4 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoon paprika powder
  • 3-4 tablespoon chili powder
  • ½ cube of beef bouillon
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

How to:

  • Saute the onions until it soft and the color turns transparent.
  • Cook the meat together with the onions until the color of the meat turns darker.
  • Pour in the baked beans in tomato sauce + kidney beans + crushed tomatoes.
  • Season it with cayenne pepper + paprika powder + chili powder + salt + pepper (if needed, you can always add the seasoning).
  • Add the beef bouillon cube.
  • Bring it to boil.
  • Served with rice or potato. Add some cheese if you like.

And there you have it… Bebe’s version of Chili Con Carne… ^___^

  1. this bebe’s version of chili con carne seem fabulous, i also love to make every thing from scratch or always try to make some different..

  2. Looks yum! I love chili especially in the colder months, it’s just hearty and perfect and so filling. Have you tried white chili be? It uses chicken instead of beef and cannelini beans instead of kidney. Equally delish!

    • Nope, first time I ever heard about it actually.. Gonna go look around for the recipe then, maybe hubby will like it too.. Thanks for the tip. 😀
