Chilli con Carne for Toddlers

January 22, 2008 at 12:34 am 2 comments

One of the cool things about wordpress is that you can see what people have been ‘googling’ to get to your site. Last week someone wanted a ‘toddler friendly chilli recipe’ so I thought I’d oblige.

This is a great recipe for kids and also for adults that don’t really like spicy ‘foreign’ food. My mum used to make it for us all the time. You can, of course, adjust the seasonings to taste.

Domestically Blissed’s Toddler Chilli

  • 1 tbsp canola or olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 
  •  500g lean ground beef mince
  • 1 jar of standard issue tomatoe pasta sauce ( I use Dolmio)
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tin baked beans in tomato sauce, drained slightly
  • 1/4 tsp ground chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano


In a large saucepan heat the oil then add the onion, garlic, mince, spices and herbs. Cook until mince is browned. Drain any excess liquid.

 Add pasta sauce, tomatoes and baked beans.

 Simmer on a low heat for 30-45 minutes until some of the excess liquid has been absorbed.

Serve with: sour cream and mashed avocado preferably! For adults wanting more kick, add tabasco or chilli sauce, or some chilli flakes.

Great with  rice, on toast or in pitas!
