  1. Heat the oil in a large pot.
  2. Crumble the mince into the pot and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the meat is well browned. Drain any fat.
  3. Add the onions, garlic, and vegetables and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently and taking care that the garlic does not brown.
  4. Add the tomatoes, tomato puree, beans, water, salt to taste, and 2 teaspoons of the chilli powder. Bring the mixture to the boil, and then reduce the heat to a low simmer.
  5. Cook uncovered, for at least three hours (the longer the better), stirring occasionally to make sure the bottom is not burning. Season with additional chilli powder, hot sauce, and salt and pepper if desired.
  6. Serve with tortilla chips with grated cheese, soured cream and avocado.
