Hot Chilli Con Carne by Food Blogger Claire Justine

Chilli con carne is a popular favourite in our house and its not uncommon that it makes an appearance on the dinner menu. You may not see this traditionally Mexican dish as the kind of thing that can be spiced up with a very English chutney but you'd be mistaken. I decided to play around with the idea of using chutney in a few different dishes and this was by far my favourite.
