Cheap Chilli Con Carne (vegetarian)

Published by Charlotte

Chilli Con Carne made with soy mince

55%

Ingredients

  • 100g of dried soy mince (tastes just as good as beef mince and is around a quarter of the price!)
  • 1 tin of Red kidney beans
  • Jar of chilli con carne sauce or chilli con carne mix powder
  • *Makes enough for 3 or 4 people*

Method

Place the dried soy mince in a bowl and cover in boiling water for around 1 minute then drain.

If using chilli con carne powder mix, make up according to the instructions and place in a large, deep frying pan. If using sauce, place in a large deep frying pan.

Stir the kidney beans and mince into the sauce and heat for around 20 minutes

Cooked!

Serve with tortilla wraps (and cheese), rice or jacket potatoes

    I agree with chris. This is not even a recipe. It is instructions on how to open a jar of pre-made crap and heat it up. This is the most pathetic "recipe" i have seen on here. There are some awesome recipes on this site which are simple and inexpensive.

    This looks really tasty and simple, but where can you buy soy mince? (In UK)

    This sound lovely and so cheap because there aren't loads of ingredients. I'll definitely be trying this.

    Chris - the students that this website is aimed at are more the 'impoverished-uni-goers-attempting-to-live-on-a-fiver-a-week' kind. Not so much the 'gcse-student-too-lazy-to-do-some-real-work' kind. Perhaps when you let go of mummys apron ties, move out and discover what living on a shoestring budget is like you won't be so dismissive of such 'pathetic' recipes :)

    You will find that this website is called studenrecipes.com not Recipes For Chris To Get A Good GCSE Grade. This sounds delish, might have to try it.

    The idea was for cheap and easy food that tastes good. Not to get you a good grade. Devise your own recipe you lazy g*t!

    The recipe sounds yum. :)

    well maybe she didn't put the recipe on for you to use in your gcse food exam thing

    I find this recipe rather pathetic. I am in my final year of Seconday School and need to cook some recipes to get the grade I need. I'm going to be assessed on my practical skill. This uses barely any practical skills at all. I would not recommend this recipe to any students.
