Chilli Con Carne

Chilli con carne has always been something of an exotic food. We've never had it before but Ting's steaming hot bowl of chilli con carne looked so good that I had to try and make it. Little Boy did a taste test this morning. His verdict was that there was too much vegetable and no meat.

"But... but... but... there is one kilo of ground beef in there, my love!" He looked at me and said "Then why can't I taste the meat? Either, you make a dish with a lot of vegetables, like ratatouille... or you make a proper meat dish. It's not good to disguise vegetables with meat."

You know what I think. He just wants to be able to clearly distinguish veggie from meat so that he knows which dish NOT to take at dinner. The chilli con carne has everything all mushed together and that makes it difficult for him to pick out the carrot bits.

LOL. I think CH must be thinking along the same line but he politely said, "I like mine with chunks of meat in it."

Hence, I used a mixture of chunky and minced meat.

Ting - Yup! CH probably knows himself better than my son knows himself. I will try and make the next lot with meat chunks in it.

You might want to try another dish my friend served that day. Also very nice but I haven't had time to make.
