This site is all about cooking Chilli Con Carne. There is a lot of controversy and discussion about where Chilli Con Carne originated and if it should have beans in or tomatoes and so on. They are pointless discussions, Chilli Con carne like most dishes has evolved and become what it is wherever it is in 100s of different incarnations.
