Cooking the rice with the rest of the ingredients came from my South African upbringing. It's my family's ultimate comfort food. I often make 2 lots up - 1 for the chili lovers and another (minus the hot stuff) for the chili haters! Both are extremely tasty and easy to prepare. Can be reheated next day too if you make too much! You can also add more veg depending on what's in the fridge.
If you're on a bit of a health kick this is also great with more veg added, brown rice and turkey mince.
easy comfort food with little washing up after! - 20 Nov 2010
Made this tonight and the whole family scoffed it. My son who's not been eating dinners was first to finish. Will definitely make again. Thanks for great recipe - 24 Jun 2014
