  • 1kg premium beef mince (get this from your butcher so you know it is good quality)
  • 1lt tomato passata
  • 2 tbs cumin – freshly toasted and ground is best
  • 1 spanish onion – small dice
  • 2 red capsicums – deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 1 bunch coriander roots – washed and finely chopped
  • 1 knob ginger – peel and grated
  • 2 garlic cloves – peel and grated
  • 2 x 400g tins red kidney beans – drain and discard liquid
  • Brookfarm macadamia oil infused with Chilli & Lime
  • Salt and pepper


  • heat a non stick sauce pan on high / medium heat – once hot add a good drizzle of Macadamia nut oil
  • add your diced onion and capsicum and season with salt and pepper – cook on high / medium – keep stirring and allow for the capsicum and onion to soften – do not allow them to caramelise though
  • once softened – turn down to medium and add your grated ginger and garlic and cook for a further 2-3 minutes – it is important not to let the ginger or garlic burn
  • remove from the heat and add your passata then your cold mince – using gloves to protect your hands – massage the mince into the passata, onion and capsicum mixture – until well combined
  • return to the heat and bring to the boil – stirring occasionally
  • once boiling reduce to a simmer and let the mince cook gently and for most of the liquid to evaporate – so the sauce thickens – allow to gently simmer for approx 20-30 mins
  • add the kidney beans – and cook for a further 10 mins –
  • check your seasoning then your ready to go!

Serving Suggestions

  • works really well with soft burritos, lettuce, avocado salsa, and freshly slice tomato, topped with coriander
  • is also of course magic with steamed rice and some yoghurt on the side
  • does wonders for a hangover served on toast
  • if you like your Chilli Con Carne hot – simply add some fresh chillies to the onion and capsicum or serve some freshly chopped chilli’s on the side
