Notes about this recipe

    This was really easy to make and the prep was speedy, so I think it delivers on the promise of the title. I made it a day in advance and was quite worried once it was cooked that the cinnamon was slightly overpowering, but on the day we ate it the flavours had mellowed nicely. I didn't have any chile d'arbol, so I subbed chilli flakes and could probably have done with adding more than I did. We all enjoyed it - not sure it's my favourite chile recipe, but it is a good one.

    Not easy, not speedy, but defintely the best chilli con carne I've ever had.
