Chili con Carne


  1. 5 large onions (1 kg)
  2. 2 cloves of garlic
  3. 4 tins of tomatotes
  4. 1 kg stewing beef
  5. 500g dried kidney beans
  6. 3 peppers
  7. 1 tbsp chili powder
  8. 1 red chilli pepper
  9. salt
  10. pepper


Soak the kidney beans overnight in water.

Chop the onions and the garlic and fry in a bit of vegetable oil. Add the tomaotes and the beans, and cook 20 minutes in a pressure cooker (or 45 minutes in a normal saucepan). Cut the meat into chunks and fry in a frying pan with a bit of vegetable oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the chili powder and the finely chopped red chilli pepper and the meat and cook for another 35 minutes in the pressure cooker (or 1 1/2 hours in a normal saucepan). When the meat is tender, chop the peppers and add them. Boil for another 10 minutes so that the peppers still have a bit of a bite.

Serve with boiled rice.
