Chilli con carne in Mexican is translated as ‘peppers with meat’ and although most people think its origins stem from Mexico too, it’s actually more synonymous with Texas in the United States, according to Artic Gardens.
Similar to what we South Africans know as chakalaka, (without the addition of meat of course), the base for chilli con carne consists of peppers, chilli, tomato sauce and beans. It pairs well with tacos, nachos or it can even be used as a base to create a hearty pasta dish.
