Cyndi's Super Easy Chilli Con Carne

When I first started covetting the Thermomix it was because I knew it would make things like mayonnaise, sauces and custards so much easier.  I really had no idea that I would use if for the main meal as often as I do (easily 5 nights out of 7).  Probably the thing I love most about the Thermomix is that it saves me so much time doing simple, tasy, nutritional meals. 

A few days during the week, I don't get back from the school run until almost 5pm.  On these days, I tend to cook one of the quick and easy options which I know the boys love.  It means that eating dinner won't take forever - they're hungry, it tastes good and therefore they devour it quickly.  It also means that whilst it's cooking, I can supervise bathtime so that after feeding time at the zoo is finished, they're ready for bed.   Risotto al Salmone is probably the top of Sammie's list, whilst Cyndi O'Meara's Chilli Con Carne is Jack's favourite.  It was on the menu tonight - it takes all of 2 minutes prep and about 30 minutes cooking time, is tasty and the leftovers are great the next night for tacos!
