The Mediterranean Chilli Con Carne is a mix of 2 dishes. The Mexican Chilli con Carne with the famous Italian bolognese. Of course, this recipe follows my low carb Meditteranean line. Chilli con carne is in Spanish chili with meat. That represents fairly well the nature of this dish. Minced beef in tomatoes and red pepper sauce. I actually make 2 versions for this dish. The spicy version and the not spicy for kids and those who don’t like spicy food.

What I love about this dish is that I can serve it in so many different ways and always make it fun and fresh. Unlike the original, I do not serve it with rice, corn tortilla or plain pasta. To keep this a healthy meal I keep it gluten-free with low carb and not so long crab options.

Suggested serving for the Mediterranean Style Chilli Con Carne

The low carb fantastic options are:

  • Adding it as a sauce to zoodles (and i have a few more zoodles recipes in the blog).
  • Adding it as a sauce  on cauliflower rice, which is a fantastic substitute for white rice
  • Have the medit chilli con carne as a main dish with a side of low carb guacamole and roasted veggies

Healthy, gluten-free options:

  • Buckwheat pita bread (or tortilla) – I found these on the local healthy market, but they are so simple and i will release my own recipe soon. You can find other recipes as well. Just add it on the buckwheat flatbread with sour cream, guacamole and some sprouts on top. It’s so delicious.
  • Serve the medit con carne along with simple buckwheat, amaranth or quinoa

So, as you can see there are so many options to serve this Mediterranean Style Chilli Con Carne. You’ll never get tired from it. Another great benefit of this, just like all my other recipes is that it’s super easy to make.

To start you’ll have to chop an onion and cock it with pre-heated olive oil, then add the garlic clove. I use 2-3 garlic cloves for 1lb (about 0.5 kg) of beef. With the garlic, I also add the chopped red pepper and cock it together. Add the paprika and cumin and stir well. Now, I add 3 ripe tomatoes chopped coarsely and let it cook on a low heat with a closed lid until it softens completely. When softened it’s time to add my grass-fed ground beef. Make sure to separate the ground beef to small minced beef pieces and cook thoroughly until it changes the color. When the color has changed it’s time to add the beans in tomato sauce and cook for another 10 min. It’s ready to serve

Final thought, if you like spicy food like me, there are many options to make it spicy. My favorite is adding a red chili pepper with the red pepper. Another good option is using hot Spanish paprika.
