An easy, delicious and meat-free chilli con carne recipe that is perfect for making ahead and freezing, so you are always ready for romantic dinner with your sweetheart!

Tip: Chili with wine

The key component in the wine to think about here is alcohol, because for most people alcohol gives a warming sensation, combine that heat with heat from the chili in the dish and you have ignition, therefore, the overall effect will be a warmer and more spicy sensation. I would go for something hearty – an Argentine Malbec would be my first choice or sparkling shiraz.

This is simply amazing chilli. This is the best “chili con carne” I have ever made. Give it to any meat eater and they will not complain, quite the opposite!
