Latest Wow BBQ Article - The Best Chilli Con Carne (Seriously)
Posted: Monday 16th March 2015

It's been an exciting week for us at WOW BBQ with the team going off to Weber's 'Grill Academy on Tour' training sessions to freshen up on product knowledge and try out some fantastic recipes. Inspired by what we saw, we decided to cook up our version of one of the recipes shown to us by Weber's team of expert barbecue chefs - Chilli Con Carne.

It's worth noting at this point that whilst any recommendations as to how many people this will serve are useless as it's so delicious everyone will be fighting for seconds and thirds, we fed six people comfortably with the amounts below. We cooked this on a Charcoal grill, but you can do it on any Weber barbecue which has the Gourmet Barbecue System (GBS) Grate. 

For this recipe you will need:

- 1kg beef mince
- Two onions, chopped
- Four garlic cloves, finely chopped
- Three chillies, chopped 
- 3 tsp hot chilli powder
- 5 tsp ground cumin 
- 2 tsp oregano
- 2 tins red kidney beans
- 2 tins good quality chopped tomatoes
- 2 tbsp sugar 
- 2 cans of stout (in honour of the upcoming St.Patrick's Day, we used Guinness)

To Serve:

- Tortillas 
- Guacamole
- Sour Cream 
- Sliced Jalapenos
- Grated cheese


First, set up your Chimney Starter with Weber Briquettes and light, leaving these to start to burn whilst you get your prep done.

Then, set up your barbecue for direct heat underneath the GBS grate, place the Gourmet Wok over the heat and add oil.

Once the oil is hot, add the mince and, using the Wok Tool Set
make sure that all of it is browned off.

Then add in the onion, garlic and chilli and fry off for 4-5 minutes.

After the onions have softened, add the spices and fry for a further 2-3 minutes. Then add the kidney beans, chopped tomatoes and stout, along with the sugar.

Then simply put the lid on your grill and allow the chilli to cook down. We added a lump or two of Pecan Wood to the coals to smoke the dish and add another level of flavour. Within about half an hour or so the heat inside the Weber will have cooked the liquid down into an intensely flavoured sauce, and the chilli is ready to eat!

Serve with rice or better yet in toasted tortillas with guacamole and sour cream! Top with cheese, jalepenos and whatever else you fancy.. Why not try with grilled hotdogs? Add to your banger and bun for an awesome chilli dog!
