Mexican Chilli Con Carne
Blend No.9 Mexican - A wonderful flavourful blend that is not too fiery (add more chilli for a real kick).
Mexican food lends itself to being cooked on the BBQ or grill. Use this spice mix as a rub to cook meat, poultry, Seitan or Tempeh, kebab style, then serve in tortilla wraps with cool sour cream, a bean salad & a squeeze of lime.
An all time classic, Chilli Con Carne has to be up there as one of the best meals to prepare ahead of time. The longer you leave it the better it gets. Try our spice blend and you will never go back to a packet mix. Use our east to follow recipe card to make this classic the way it is supposed to be.
All of our spice mixes are hand blended by us to our own recipes in small batches. Our suppliers source our spices direct from the producers all over the world so you get fresh, full flavoured spices that take your cooking to another level.
