Despite popular belief this hearty, all-time classic did not actually originate from Mexico. The exact origins are unknown and as with the Minestrone Soup recipe I posted a few weeks ago, there are many different variations and recipes out there.
This is the recipe I’ve used for as long as I can remember, and the way I make it hasn’t changed in all those years, even after starting on the Slimming World Journey.
Well, maybe just the omission of oil and addition of Frylight. The substitution of regular mince with below 5% fat mince and the addition of a pile of speed foods, but that’s it!
This can be done in the slow cooker, in a pan on the stove or in the oven the choice is yours. I prefer to just chuck it in and leave it to do it’s thing for a few hours so I like to use the slow cooker.
If you’re feeling a bit daring you could even use Frylight Infuse Chilli or Garlic instead of regular Frylight.

Speaking of slow cookers, we use an Instant Pot, which is like a slow cooker/pressure cooker hybrid.
If you’re like me you’ll remember the slow cookers of old that would splutter and rock, and make all sorts of scary noises! None of that with the Instant Pot – just set the time, close the lid and go. It even keeps your food warm once it’s finished cooking?!
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Sunflower or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Slow Cooker Chilli recipe.
