Syn free chilli con carne is one of those dishes that you’ll come back to time and time again if you want a fuss-free meal that’ll go down with a storm with just about anyone you serve it to.

Got friends coming over for a meal and a few drinks?

Fancy something warm and comforting but trying to avoid the lure of a takeaway?

Need something that you can whip out the freezer after a long day at work?

Whatever the occasion, a Syn free chilli con carne fits the bill.

Best of all, it’s probably one of the easiest meals that you’ll ever make.

Here’s how it’s done…

For the full ingredients list and detailed instructions, see the recipe card at the end of this post. Make sure you check out this important information first though…

Using Spicentice for your Syn free chilli con carne

I’m all about saving time when it comes to meal prep.

I love cooking, and in an ideal world, I’d have hours and hours every single day to slave over a hot stove, experimenting with loads of different ingredients and creating everything from scratch.

The truth though is that I, no doubt like you, have a million and one other things to be doing. So if there’s a shortcut that can be taken without compromising on Syn values or taste, then I’m right at the front of the queue.

Which is exactly why I personally use and recommend Spicentice chilli con carne mix for this dish.

It’s quite simply a little pot of all the right herbs and seasonings, taking away the need to have a million and one jars in your kitchen that you’ll probably never finish.

Best of all, you’ll find no hidden rubbish in any of their products.

My advice? Give yourself a break and place an order. It’s not cheating… It’s just being economical with your time, and you’ll definitely thank yourself once your delicious, warming chilli is on the table.

What should you serve with your syn free chilli con carne?

My personal favourite way to serve this Syn free chilli con carne is simply with a portion of steamed rice.

If you want to get a bit more creative though, there’s tons of options.

It teams up perfectly with chips or wedges, homemade healthy nachos, or a big fresh bowl of salad.

Alternatively, serve it piled on top of a steaming hot jacket potato, with a dollop of natural yogurt if you feel the need to cool it down a little.

It’s also great with a sprinkling of cheese from your Healthy Extras allowance!
