Kents Kitchen Meal Kit - Chilli Con Carne Recipe*

Over the weekend we wanted to make something simple and relatively quick for dinner so we decided to try one of the Kents Kitchen Meal Kits. I was recently sent so many products over from the people at Kents Kitchen to try and review for you all and as chilli is something I make all the time, this meal kit was the best one to start with and one I really wanted to write about. 

In case you didn't know Kents Kitchen sell a range of meal kits and products all with the aim of you making delicious meals in a timely manner. Nobody wants to spend ages cooking after a busy day but with the help of Kents Kitchen you can make hearty, healthy meals in less time than you would think. All you need to do is add a few simple ingredients. 

Chilli con carne is something we make a lot, usually once a week because I just love it so much. It really is my favourite meal so I was interested to see how this would turn out and if it would be any different to how I normally make it. 
This kit included olive oil, herb, seasoning and spices and chilli con carne paste. The only things I needed to add were mince, chopped tomatoes and kidney beans, everything I already had in! 

I started by cooking the mince in chilli fry light, I didn't end up using the oil as I don't feel like its necessary if you already have something to cook your meat in. I  then added the chopped tomatoes, some beef stock, the chilli con carne paste and the seasoning and spices. I just left it all to simmer for about 20 minutes then added my kidney beans. Again I left it to simmer while the rice was cooking and it became a nice thick mixture. It did taste different to the chilli I would normally make but that was a good thing. I think it was just because I didn't use my own spices, the ones included were great though, not too hot if you don't like spicy food but enough for those who do like a bit of spice in their chilli. 
Overall, this was just great. I really loved it and will be looking out for the chilli con carne meal kit in the future. It was so simple, the instructions were clear and most of the things you will need to add, will probably be in your cupboard. I have loads of other meal kits to try so look out for more of these soon.
