By: lochster - 2011-09-13 I made mine without the sugar and instead of parsley I added coriander to take the heat out of it a little. I also used extra lean beef mince. All in all it was a nice dish minus the salt and the sugar content.
By: nona - 2010-03-28 This recipe will go with so many things. Tonight, the family will have chilli con carne hot dogs.
By: paulab - 2009-10-28 This is beautiful! I freeze portions and serve it with toasted pita bread or over doongara rice. Also good in toasted sandwiches.
By: barlz - 2009-03-31 Hi, Thanks for the great tasting recipe but where does the 302 calories come from ? My calculated total came to 430 calories per serve.
By: sher - 2008-11-14 I used Sweet Chilli Sauce and small amount of chilli powder (because I didn''t have mexican chilli powder) and used 4 bean mix, served over baked potato with cheese on top. Yummy.
By: suzienoname - 2008-05-30 Its me again, you can also add like zucchini, and capsicums too.
By: suzienoname - 2008-05-30 I found it very yummy. One thing I do goes back for years that I do with mince. I fry it off in the fry pan, put it into a colander, run very hot water over it, wipe the fry pan with a paper towel to get rid of the excess fat. Return the mince to the fry pan, and continue on cooking the recipe.
Thanks for the great recipes.
