For our fourth instalment we took on two somewhat exotic dishes, an American style Cobbler and an aromatic Mexican style Chilli Con Carne
Cobbler is a traditionally sweet dish in America, famously Peach Cobbler. Here we are using it in a savoury application. I am using a chicken stew with a cheese and onion flavoured scone mix, but really and wet dish will work being topped by any flavouring of scone mix.
Chilli Con Carne can so often be just a spicy beef bolognaise with some beans, this recipe however creates layers of beefy, spiced, aromatic and creamy notes. Using slow cooking and some care and attention to the initial cooking stage you can create a chilli beef that is so complex with deep flavours.
Below are word and PDF copies of the recipes.
