Veggie Filled Chilli Con Carne

Veggie Laden Chilli Con Carne

It is actually way harder than we think to eat enough Vegetables in a day and it is definitely tricky to get enough into our kids.  This recipe helps hide the Veg away, adds flavour and pads out my preferred choice of grass fed or Organic Beef.  To me this is a WIN WIN situation.  We eat more vegetables as a family and I can use less meat and buy quality, instead of mass produced chemical laden meat.
