    This recipe is a hybrid of various Chilli con carne recipes I have tried. I've stuck with the spices I like and adapted the recipes to make my own. Hope you enjoy!!


    1. 1. Finely chop the onion, garlic, carrot and celery. Roughly chop the red pepper.
    2. 2. Heat a pan on a medium heat, add 2 lugs of olive oil and all of the vegetables. Add the chilli, paprika, cumin, cinnamon and seasoning. Stir for 7 minutes.
    3. 3. Brown the mince in a pan, then add the drained kidney beans and chopped tomatoes. Add 200ml of water.
    4. 4. Stir in the coriander and balsamic vinegar, check seasoning.
    5. 5. Bring to the boil and then simmer for one hour with the lid askew.
    6. 6. Serve with rice, yogurt or sour cream, lime wedges and guacamole.

      Everyone likes chilli - so versatile it can be added to a wide array of foods to make a lovely, warming meal on a cold autumn evening


      1. Heat oil in large flameproof casserole pan to a medium heat (not too high so onions don't burn!)
      2. Fry onions, celery and chillies until onions soften (approx 10 min)
      3. Increase heat, add beef mince, and cook until browned, stirring constantly
      4. Pour out excess fat (if any) into old container
      5. Add chilli powder, ground cumin, and tomato puree. Mix well for a minute.
      6. Add sugar, worcester sauce, oregano, stock and tomatoes. Stir well and bring to boil.
      7. When boiling, lower heat to a gentle simmer and cook for approx 40 min until ready
      8. If you wish to add kidney beans, stir them in 10 min before the end

        I've always liked chilli, but never tried celery in it; will give that a go. Instead of cumin, I add cinnamon; variety being the spice of life...

        2. 2. Add mince and fry until brown. Drain off any excess juices from the mince as you go.
        3. 3. Add oxo cube and stir in.
        4. 4. Add beans and tomatoes and stir in.
        5. 5. Add packet chilli mix and add some boiling water to thin the chilli to suit you.
        6. 6. if you like an extra kick then add the teaspoon of crushed chilli.
        7. 7. Simmer chilli for 20-30 mins.
        8. 8. Serve with rice and crusty bread.

        9. This recipe tastes great re-heated the next day.

          I have used the schwartz mix and it works well. I've also used Aldi or Sainsburys too. My favourite believe it or not is Morrisons own brand. Hope this helps.

          1. What to do:
          2. 1. Heat a large saucepan and add the minced beef, a handful at a time, cooking it until browned. Add the
          3. onion and garlic and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
          4. 2. Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, spices, red pepper, mushrooms, kidney beans and stock.
          5. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer gently for between 15-20 minutes.
          6. 3. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to pack instructions.
          7. 4. Season the chilli with pepper and serve with boiled rice.
          8. Tip 1: Instead of serving with rice, serve with baked potatoes, topped with a spoonful of low-fat plain yogurt
          9. and some chopped cucumber and tomatoes.
          10. Tip 2: Turkey mince makes an excellent chilli - and it's lower in fat too. If you are a vegetarian, substitute
          11. the minced beef with vegetarian mince.
