Chilli-Con-Carne in a Boat

Chilli-con-Yorkshire!

Chilli con carne is one of those dishes from around the world that we’ve really taken to heart in Britain. You can have it mildly spicy, medium spicy or dynamite hot! You can have it with rice, or a jacket potato or chips if you like. You can make up a big pan full and freeze extra portions for quick and easy midweek meals. And now you can have it in an Aunt Bessie’s Yorkshire Pudding Boat. Go on, push the boat out...
