Easy chilli


This is a favourite of ours as so easy to make and my boy loves anything with rice or pasta. My boy is not keen on meat but loves mince meat so loves chilli, lasagne, bolognese, etc. so we usually make one of these sort of dishes weekly. We don’t have it that spicy though as my boy wouldn’t eat it but you can add as much or as little chilli powder as suits your pallet.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes

What I used:

1 x pack of beef mince (could use quorn)
1 x onion
4 x garlic cloves
1 x yellow pepper
About 6 mushrooms
1 x small tin of sweet corn
1 x tin of kidney beans
1 x carton of passata
1 x tsp Smoke paprika
1 x tsp Basil
1 x tsp Chilli powder
1 x Beef oxo cube
A drizzle of Worcester sauce
Small amount of boiled water
Pepper to season

To accompany:

White rice
Sour cream and tortillas (yum yum)

What I did:

I fried the onion and garlic in some olive oil until soft in a large pan (I use a wok) and then added the mince meat. I then added the oxo cube and a small amount of boiled water (just to avoid it going too dry). Then I added the basil, paprika, chilli powder, pepper to season and Worcester sauce. I sliced the yellow pepper and mushrooms and added these to the pan. Finally I added the sweet corn, kidney beans and passata. This was then all cooked through for about 30 minutes. Whilst this cooked through I cooked the rice.







All you need to do then is serve the chilli with the rice. I use large bowls and serve the chilli on top of the rice. All you need then is a spoon or fork and dig in!! Easy eating!!
