Chili con carne: Mexican recipe with and without Thermomix

Yesterday I explained that tortilla chips or corn tortillas is one of the best known Mexican dishes and can be used in many other preparations such as this chili con carne recipe, also called chili beans, which I explain to you with and without Thermomix.

I bought the beans or black beans already cooked, I just had to rinse them and drain them, but you can buy the dried vegetables and boil them at home, it will take a little longer but you will surely gain in flavor. In this case, remember to soak them the night before to soften them.
