There’s nothing quite like tucking into a warm bowl of Chilli Con Carne when you’re in need of a no-fuss, healthy but wholesome, dinner fit for all the family.

All our Healthy Hearts Programme recipes are designed with heart health in mind and our wholesome Chilli Con Carne recipe is no different. We’ve combined 5% lean beef mince with beans and heaps of vegetables for a chilli which is not only low in saturated fat but also will add fibre and help you towards your 5-a-day.

Cutting back on your saturated fat and red meat intake is a great way to look after your heart health. Too much saturated fat can raise your cholesterol levels and increase your risk of a heart attack or stroke. You can learn more about how diet impacts your heart health here.

We've made sure that in each portion of our Chilli, there's only 5.9g of total fat, and only 2.5g saturated fat, so you can be sure that you're making a healthy choice for your heart. It's also packed with 31g of protein and nearly 12g of fibre to help keep you feeling full for longer.

The best bit? Our Beef and Veg Chilli tastes great no matter what veg you throw in. You could experiment by adding some of your other favourite vegetables (or whatever veg you have leftover in the fridge) to help reduce food waste and create a super voluminous dish.

Plus, you can double or triple the ingredients and batch cook this  to prepare for a busy week ahead. It makes a perfect post-workout meal for a delicious refuel after your weekly Healthy Hearts Programme workouts.
