Wendy’s Chilli Con Carne

A recipe provided to my by my Aunty Wendy…  I cooked this up for breakfast although be pre-warned with how long it stays on the stove, it was more like brunch.  Steve and I both agreed served over corn chips with melted cheese is the only option or as Aunty Wendy put it:  Serve with Corn Chips and Beer according to Josh and Kayla (the ‘kids’)

I should also call out that as someone who doesn’t like a huge amount of spice or chilli, I substituted this with sweet chilli but still it has quite a kick so be prepared.  The other half said he really enjoyed it with the fried egg.
