No Bean Chilli Con Carne

Calling all chilli con carne lovers! Don’t have the time for a lengthy homemade recipe? This fuss-free, one-step chilli is for you!

Introducing New Gran Luchito Chilli Con Carne Sauce. Packed with comfort and deep flavour, bottled in a jar, all you need to do is fry some minced beef, add the sauce, and simmer. You’ll have a deliciously rich chilli in minutes.

Beans are optional, but for a classic Texas chilli experience, we recommend skipping them. Instead, savour the bold flavours of the sauce combined with tender meat. Sometimes, simple is best!

Feel free to substitute ground beef with ground turkey, pork, or even a combination for a richer flavour.

This chilli recipe is ready in just 15 minutes. Serve it with steamed white rice and dollops of sour cream on top. Grated cheese, finely chopped coriander, and crunchy Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips are other delicious topping options.

For more heat try this recipe and add 1 tbsp of Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste.
