California Walnut Mince Chilli Con Carne:

California Walnuts has created four new recipes, each costing less than £2 per serving to inspire you in the kitchen this autumn.

So on Friday I shared Raspberry, Honey & California Walnut Baked Oats. Also yesterday I shared for lunch or a simple supper; a tasty leek, potato and California walnut soup.

Today it is California Walnut Mince Chilli Con Carne. How tasty!

The walnut mince lends a meaty texture and a subtle nuttiness, while a medley of aromatic spices and robust chili peppers create a tantalising heat.

Each spoonful is a delightful blend of flavours, with the walnuts adding a satisfying crunch. Experience the warmth and satisfaction of this wholesome chili con carne that will leave you craving for seconds.
