#TMCKitchenSeries: Easy Chili con Carne with Hormel Chili 

Jun 3, 2015 | Food

One of my favorite go-to restaurants is Mexicali. On rare occasions that my husband and I decided to watch a movie on the big screen, we always pass by Mexicali to order ground beef burrito and cheese and garlic quesadilla for our movie snack. Last weekend (and because we forgot to bring extra cash for lunch out. LOL), we decided to eat in Mexicali. We still ordered burrito but this time, we added chili con carne among our favorites. 

Chili con Carne 1

This costs around P100+ in Landmark

Of course, we got bitin with the serving, although a bowl of chili is enough to fill two persons. So during our Sunday grocery and because the husband requested it, I bought Hormel Chili and made Chili con Carne. For some reason, I’m scared to cook this dish. I’ve tasted really good Chili con Carne from different restaurants that I don’t know if I could replicate the taste. Hence, I decided to use Hormel Chili until such time that I can cook this dish. Haha! Anyway, sharing with you an easy Chili con Carne dish using Hormel Chili. 

Chili con Carne made easy with Hormel Chili Chili con Carne 8You will need onion, garlic, ground pork, tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, chili powder and a whole can of Hormel Chili. Start by sauteing garlic and onion. Chili con Carne 2Then add ground pork and cook until it turns brown. It’s up to you on how much you want to use for your Chili con Carne. Ground beef is also another option but since I’m not a big fan of anything beef, I just stick to ground pork. Chili con Carne 3Then pour Hormel Chili on the pan. Hormel Chili has different variants but I like the one with beans on it. Mix well until the Hormel Chili is spread evenly. Chili con Carne 5I decided to add tomato paste for better consistency. At the same time, the entire can of Hormel is not enough because of additional ground pork. Season with salt. Since I want anything spicy, I also added chili powder on the dish. Chili con Carne 6Add grated cheese or sour cream on top. Serve with nachos. You can also pour this on top of hotdog for Chili dog.  Chili con Carne 7I’m still looking for the perfect but easy chili con carne recipe but in the meantime, this one will do. What do you think, mommas? Easy Chili con Carne dish using Hormel Chili.

    I’m not into Mexican food but I have friends who love to serve Mexican foods. Easy to prepare kasi just like your recipe.

      On the contrary, I don’t like cooking Mexican food. I find it challenging to cook kasi baka hindi ko makuha ang lasa. Hehehe

    We usually get burgers for the movies and it’s funny that just last week, we tried Mexicali for the first time and we ordered the same thing you did: ground beef burrito and cheese and garlic quesadilla. It’s worth every single cent!

      Very easy to prepare talaga 🙂 And yes, the Hormel Chili is affordable too. But before, around 300+ yan sa S&R. Good thing they lowered the price 🙂

    That’s usually my reason for not cooking. I’ve tasted far better dishes cooked by my mom, my husband and mother-in-law (LOL) so I get scared to whip up a similar dish by me. When I don’t have a choice, I often turn to these quick recipes as well! At least diba, may effort. 😀
