Easy chilli con carne

About this recipe:
I make this in the pub I work at and it is very popular.
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
- 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.)
- 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.
- Let the chilli simmer then add gravy powder to the mixture to thicken.
This can be frozen easily.
For a vegetarian meal the beef mince can easily be substituted with quorn mince.
. Me and my husband loved this - possibly the best chili I've ever made!

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
