Today’s blog is inspired by my boyfriend. He loves my chilli con carne and he’s working down near me this week for a change so I told him I’d make him some chilli to come home to or to take to work. It’s very easy to do, you can add as many vegetables as you like, whatever beans you like (the recipe says kidney beans but for my chilli today I used different beans) as you can add more chilli if you want it hotter.
– 1 large onion
– 1 pepper
– 2 garlic cloves
– 1 heaped tbsp of chilli powder
– 1tsp paprika
-1tsp ground cumin
-500g lean minced beef
-2 beef stock cubes
-400g can of chopped tomatoes
-1tsp sweetener (or sugar)
-2tbsp tomato puree
-tin of kidney beans
1. Cut the onions and peppers into small pieces.
2. Heat a pan, spray some fry light and add your onion, cook for about 5 minutes until soft.
3. Add the garlic, spices and pepper, stir and cook for another 5 minutes (you may need to add a little water if it starts to stick and stir, just keep an eye on it).
You can easily freeze it or store it in air tight tubs in the fridge for a few days.
Hope you enjoy!
