A delicious recipe for Chilli Con Carne with step-by-step photos which the whole family will love! The meat sauce is slow-cooked with herbs and spices with lots of kidney beans for extra protein and texture. Serve with rice or tortilla chips for a tasty meal!
Easy Chilli Con Carne
For me, there is much comfort to be found in having a large pot of Chilli Con Carne bubbling away on the stove, especially since I know that many meals can be derived from this one dish.
At other times, it happens to be a great dish to make if you are entertaining a small crowd (especially one that involves lots of children).
A quick and easy Cream of Tomato Soup with Roasted Chickpeas – the perfect meal using pantry ingredients.
Homemade Tomato Soup
As a busy mother of two, I always try to make sure that my fridge and pantry are well-stocked with regular favourites so that I can make certain recipes at a moment’s notice. A homemade tomato soup is one such recipe.
This Cottage Pie recipe has a rich meaty beef sauce as the base, topped with creamy mashed potatoes and baked until deliciously golden. An easy Cottage Pie recipe – make a double batch of the sauce to serve with pasta!
Difference between Cottage Pie and Shepherd’s Pie
One of my winter favourites is this traditional Cottage Pie which I have, confusingly, wrongly called a Shepherd’s Pie for most of my life.
It appears that a Cottage Pie is made with beef, whilst a Shepherd’s Pie is made with lamb; the latter is also usually (and traditionally) made with leftover roast meat. I’ve had it so wrong all of these years!
