Chili Con Carne With Beans

Topping for my nachos!

This is my favourite topping for nachos. It is also perfect to be paired with bread or even with long grain rice. The variety of spices and ingredients create an interesting blend of flavours and textures that truly make this dish absolutely scrumptious!
