Ingredients

Serves: 6 

  • 1kg beef mince
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tins chopped tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons gravy powder
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tin kidney beans
  • 1 packet of frozen mixed peppers

Method

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Chop the onion and garlic, and add to the pan with the mince, fry until browned. (I do no add oil to the pan as I feel the beef mince gives off enough of its own juices.)
  2. Drain off the kidney beans, wash and add to the pan. Add the frozen mixed peppers and chopped tomatoes. Add the chilli, depending on how hot you like it, 1, 2 or 3 tablespoons. Add the cumin.
  3. Let the chilli simmer then add gravy powder to the mixture to thicken.

Tip

This can be frozen easily. For a vegetarian meal the beef mince can easily be substituted with quorn mince.

Very simple and flavoursome I used a little more cumin and mushrooms instead of peppers (what the cupboard allowed). Wil definitely use this recipe again - 19 Apr 2010
