Chilli Con Carne

Remove the lid from your Crockpot Express and select the brown/sauté function. Add a time of 8 minutes and allow preheating.

Add the vegetable oil to the inner pot along with the minced beef and brown, stirring regularly.

Remove the beef to a separate bowl.

Add the onions and garlic to the pot, adding a little more vegetable oil if needed. Sauté for approx. 3-4 minutes until softened.

Stir in the remaining ingredients, fit and seal the lid and select the Beans/Chilli function.

Add a cook time of 10 minutes.

Once the unit has finished cooking, allow a natural release time of 5-10 minutes before carefully venting the remaining pressure before opening.

Adjust the seasoning.

Why not try serving with some steamed rice, tortilla chips, guacamole, fiery salsa and sour cream.
