1. Chilli Con Carne Burrito

2. Chilli Stuffed Peppers

Peppers work amazingly well with chilli con carne. Once you’ve made your best chilli and got out the leftovers, mix it with some rice and spoon it into the peppers before sprinkling with a little cheese and baking in the oven. The results speak for themselves.

 


3. Beef Empanadas with Chilli Con Carne (Posh Pasties)

Delicious crumbly pastry stuffed full of tasty chilli con carne. A great way to take your leftover chilli to a picnic, and perfect for party snacks, or pre-dinner appetisers.

Aahh Nachos.. one of life’s many pleasures. These are even more exciting because they are Chilli Beef Nachos!

Go on, go ahead and try this next-level leftover chilli version! It’s the bees knees! We recommend serving them with a side of Frijoles for extra dunking, and here is our perfect guacamole recipe.

6. Chilli Cheese Dogs

First up for our leftover chilli con carne recipes is this one. What bread to serve with chilli con carne? How about a bun! Chilli dogs are a classic American dish that we knew would work really well, given the Gran Luchito treatment. We used our Chipotle Paste to make a rich and smoky chilli con carne, and spooned it onto meaty Toulouse sausages in a bun, topped with grated mature cheddar. One for the meat-lovers for sure!

Stuffed roasted butternut squash. Cut the squash in half lengthways, scoop out seeds. Drizzle with olive oil and crush a couple of cloves of garlic into it. Roast until cooked. Remove from the oven and laddle in the left over chilli, grate some cheddar cheese over the top. Pop back into the oven for 10-15 minutes until the chilli is pipping hot and the cheese is melted. Serve complete squash with salad of your choice.

This sounds really great, we are going to have to try this one out in the test kitchen!

A cheesy potato is the way I’d eat left over chilli too! Totally delicious with sour cream on top too.

I would use it as the base for a spicy cottage pie, making sure you fork the top for extra crispy bits. Britain and Mexico working together in perfect culinary harmony!

These all look so yummy! One of my faves for chilli is taco salad. Culli on a bed of lettuce, topped with old cheddar, red onion slices, tomato bits and sour cream with tortilla chips and salsa on the side 😋

Thank you Beth! This sounds like a lovely and fresh idea with the salad and tomato. Positively salivating! 😆
