Chili con carne

Chili con carne is a staple of Tex-Mex cuisine, and in my opinion it is very similar to the frijoles charros that we eat in Mexico. It does taste quite different, but is so delicious!

Some of the main characteristics of most chili recipes are that they have beans, and that they have a deep smoky flavor. For this recipe, we have omitted the beans, and we have added some delicious smoked sausages (which is a shout out to the delicious chili dog!).

This is definitely the best chili con carne recipe that I have tried! When we were in Texas visiting a few years ago we tried quite a few version of chili con carne, and one of our favorites was in a BBQ place called Cooper’s. Since then we have tried to reinvent something that comes close, and haven’t had much success – but that all changed with this recipe!
