  1. Step 1

    To make the chilli con carne, heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, capsicum, carrot, celery, garlic and chilli. Cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until onion softens.
  2. Step 2

    Add the cumin, coriander, paprika and oregano and cook, stirring, for 1 min or until aromatic. Add the mince and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps, for 5 mins or until the mince changes colour.
  3. Step 3

    Stir in the beans, diced tomato and tomato paste. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, partially covered, stirring occasionally, for 1½ hours or until the sauce thickens and the beans are tender.
