  • How to cook

    This recipe is made with some raw ingredients and isn’t suitable for microwaving, so please follow these cooking instructions carefully.

    1. Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/ gas mark 7.

    2. Remove the film but leave the chilli con carne and rice in their wooden trays*.

    3. IMPORTANT! To cook the rice thoroughly, unfold the foil we’ve hidden under the wooden tray and tightly wrap over the top of it.

    4. Place both trays on a baking tray in the centre of the oven and cook for 25 minutes. If using a gas oven, cook for an extra 10 minutes.

    5. Leave to stand for 2 minutes before serving. Make sure it’s piping hot throughout.

    *Our wooden trays are designed for the oven, just make sure they don’t touch the element or gas flame.

    Serve it with...

    Arrange the chips on a baking tray, pour over the salsa and scatter the spring onions. Grate over a good chunk of cheese, add the chilli flakes and then put under a hot grill for about 3 minutes to let things melt. Serve with the soured cream or guacamole.


    Something to drink?

    One of the best ways to enjoy chilli con carne is alongside some American brown ale, but if you can’t get hold of some, we recommend going for something Belgian like Leffe.
