These days we’re buying in bulk, buying smartly, and making meals that stretch. When it comes to shopping smartly, one of the things we we always have in the freezer is ground beef. With 1 pound of ground beef we can make a variety of meals.
With things like Tacos, Hamburger Helper and Easy Baked Meatballs, we always have minced meat on hand. But lately the thing that I’ve loved making with ground beef is Chilli. And if you’re looking for a recipe that stretches and is easy to make, look no further than our Easy Gluten Free Chilli Con Carne.
Chilli or Chilli Con Carne as it’s known by its popular name, is dish originating from Mexico made with beef, tomatoes and red beans that have been cooked down with chilli and other spices to give a depth of flavor.
Chilli is a naturally gluten free dish, and paired with some cheese garlic pasta, then finished with a sprinkling of cheese. This Chilli is super delish and a great weeknight dinner treat or a comforting bowl of yum on a rainy day.
When it comes to our chilli, we’ve added a few ingredients to make this dish pop even more. Instead of using regular oil, we sauted our meat in Chilli Infused Coconut Oil. Plus we used coconut sugar to ad some low carb sweetness and our secret instant coffee. With these simple additions we created a Gluten Free Chilli Con Carne recipe that is sure to please.
