One Pot Chili Con Carne

I absolutely love making a huge pot of Chili Con Carne during wet and windy weeks. The leftovers are great for lunch on the go and with so many side dish options you definitely won’t get bored!

My top ways to have this chili:
In a bowl with some cauliflower rice or zoodles with some sliced avocado on top
For lunch the next day with some broccoli
Or if you’re looking for the ultimate comfort food – serve inside a baked sweet potato for the ultimate indulgence!
