Recipe: Chili con carne with mini tortillas

The miniatures lunch
April 25, 2012

I have discarded many ideas before choosing the second courses for the miniatures lunch, but the chili is one of our favorite dishes, I prepare it often creating new versions like the white chicken chili, so I decided to prepare the classic chili con carne, served with tiny tortillas.

Chilhuacle NegroI used coriander and cumin harvested last summer, and instead of paprika I used my black chili powder of Chilhuacle Negro, dark chilies with smoky overtones.

Add the ground spices, lemon juice and well drained beans and cook 20 minutes.
