Vegan Chilli Con Carne

This Vegan Chilli Con Carne is my interpretation on the classic Mexican dish. It is full of amazing flavours, such as spicy chilli flakes and sharp cumin powder. All resting on a bed of creamy mashed potato.

If you’re looking fora protein hit, this dinner is great for you, especially if you’re aiming lose weight but keep your muscle. Beans are an excellent source of protein and fibre, they are also rich in iron. Beans are great both canned and fresh, however if you’re cooking with canned beans be sure to thoroughly rinse them to remove the excess sodium they are preserved with.

I use a lot of spices in my cooking, so I find buying in bulk means each serving is super cheap. You can get bulk Smoked Paprika at Amazon: Smoked Paprika Powder – 200gm.

You can use any type of beans for this dish but kidney or black beans are recommended as they are a great combo in Mexican food.
