Chilli peppers (of all colours) are widely used in many cuisines as a spice to add pungent 'heat' to dishes.
The chilli pepper (also chile, chile pepper, chili pepper, or chili) is the berry-fruit of plants from the genus Capsicum which are members of the nightshade family, Solanaceae. Chilli peppers are widely used in many cuisines as a spice to add pungent 'heat' to dishes. Capsaicin and related compounds known as capsaicinoids are the substances giving chilli peppers their intensity when ingested or applied topically.
Chile con carne simply means " hot peppers with meat", so I seriously doubt there's an authentic recipe. I don't think the dish even exists in Mexican cuisine - but who cares? I love it, my kids love it, and (unfortunately for me because it means I have to cook) their MATES love it!

The patty is ground pork, with diced shallot, garlic and sliced Thai chilis -- mixed into the meat, and rested overnight in the fridge. Instead of ketchup, I made a...

This soup - topped with oven-cooked asparagus and bacon - doesn’t resemble much its inspirer, Crème Ninon. The taste of mixed pea sprouts and feta resembles asparagus, so the cut stalks mainly add some crunch and texture...
Dopiaza means 'onions twice' (from Hindi do ‘two’ + pyāz ‘onion’). There are many different versions of this dish with varying amounts of onion. The thing I like about dopiaza is that the second layer of onions adds a sweetness and texture to the base sauce. Its generally a medium hot dish when...
